The four-time major champion believes that the appointment of Tiger Woods as Player Director is a great addition.

Last week, the 82-time winner on the PGA Tour was appointed a Player Director, bringing the total number of Player Directors on the PGA Tour Policy Board to six.

Speaking at the pre-event conference of the FedEx St. Jude Championship, McIlroy shared his thoughts on Tiger’s inclusion in the Policy Board.

He said:

“Look, it’s a great addition. The player over the last 20 years that’s left the biggest legacy on the game, for him to be involved in the discussions around the future of professional golf and what that may look like I think is very important.

“Tiger has stepped up for all of us on Tour, and I think he realizes that the players that are on the policy board were trying to play regular golf, and at the same time try to navigate all these different things, as well.”

With the addition of Tiger Woods, Player Directors now hold the majority on the policy board, with their number reaching six. The other members include five Player Directors, five Independent Directors, and the PGA of America Director.
