It was announced Tuesday that Tiger Woods joined the PGA Tour Policy Board as a player director. Player directors have been promised full transparency and the authority to approve — or to decline to approve — any potential changes to the Tour as part of the Framework Agreement discussions.
Having more Tour players in the rooms where important decisions are being made is crucial, and this move finally allows the members to have a voice during this time of transition.
Phil Mickelson, now a member of the LIV Golf League, was glad to see the move. Lefty has often been critcial of Jay Monahan and how he has handled the situation.
On Tuesday afternoon, Mickelson tweeted his approval of Woods’ new position.
This is great to see. Players having equal representation on the board, Tiger getting more involved, and accountability across the board. Awesome news.

Mickelson is in West Virginia this week for LIV’s 10th event of the season at The Old White at Greenbrier. He tied for 40th at LIV’s last stop in London. Mickelson missed the cut at last month’s Open.
