PNGA and WSGA pick Troy Andrew as the new leader

Updated: August 1, 2011

The Pacific Northwest Golf Association (PNGA) and Washington State Golf Association (WSGA) have announced that Troy Andrew will take over as the new Executive Director of the two associations. Andrew will begin his new duties at the PNGA and WSGA effective immediately.

Andrew replaces John Bodenhamer, who was the CEO and Executive Director of the two associations for 21 years before leaving last month to join the senior staff of the United States Golf Association as the Senior Managing Director of Rules, Competitions and Amateur Status.

With the departure of Bodenhamer, the Board of Directors of the two associations had wanted a seamless transition and turned to Andrew, who had been serving as the Assistant Executive Director.

Andrew, 37, was originally hired in 1999 by the PNGA and WSGA and served as the Senior Director of Rules and Competition for seven years before becoming the Assistant Executive Director and Senior Director of Communications for the associations in 2007. In Andrew’s 12 years with the associations he has been involved with every aspect of their core services, which includes championships, Rules of Golf, Evans Scholarship Program, Pacific Northwest Golfer magazine, membership services, and the GHIN handicap software.

Andrew has been a member of the International Association of Golf Administrators since 2000 and served on the USGA GHIN Tournament Pairings Program Steering Committee from 2004-2006. Andrew earned a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations and Marketing at Central Washington University in 1997. Prior to joining the PNGA and WSGA, he was the Assistant Tournament Director for the Pacific Northwest Section.
