LOS ANGELES – Jordan Spieth was elected chairman of the PGA Tour Player Advisory Council, defeating Billy Hurley III in a players’ vote that ended Tuesday.

Spieth will replace Davis Love III as one of four player directors on the Tour policy board next year and serve a three-year term.

“Having a player with Jordan’s pedigree and perspective will be a tremendous addition to the PAC this year and the policy board starting in 2019,” Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said in a statement.

The 16-player PAC consults the policy board and Monahan on issues affecting the Tour.
