CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Ken Tackett, who has served as the executive director of the West Virginia Golf Association since 2006, has accepted a position as rules official for the PGA Tour.
Tackett will spend 28 weeks a year, which will include about 24 tournaments during the PGA Tour season. However, on the list is not the Greenbrier Classic at the Old White TPC, July 3-6.
With Tackett's new responsibility, the WVGA is accepting resumes for the executive director position.
Since Tackett replaced Danny Fisher in his administrative position at the WVGA, the association's revenue had grown from $600,000 annually to $1.2 million.
The WVGA handles the Senior Series, the Callaway Junior Tour and the Wendy's Amateur Tour to its summer events.
Tackett, a 1993 graduate of Capital High School, will help with the execution of events as part of his responsibilities on the PGA Tour.
With Tackett's new position, the WVGA is accepting resumes for the executive director position. Among the responsibilities of the executive director is to maintain and identify funding sources and market the association's benefits to its members and sponsors. A qualified candidate must possess excellent time and fiscal management skills.
