PGA TOUR announces four additions to 2022 PGA TOUR Players Advisory Council

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida – The PGA TOUR today announced Max Homa, Brandt Snedeker, Keith Mitchell and Kevin Streelman as additions to the Player Advisory Council (PAC) for the remainder of 2022.

Homa and Snedeker fill vacancies previously held by Brooks Koepka and Graeme McDowell. In a separate election to replace Paul Casey, Mitchell and Streelman received the most tie votes, and both players were added to the PAC, which grew in size from 16 members to 17.

The PAC advises and consults with the PGA TOUR Policy Board and Commissioner Jay Monahan on matters affecting the TOUR.

Homa, Snedeker and Mitchell will be PAC members for the first time. Streelman served as co-chair of the PAC in 2016 and then served a three-year term as director of players on the board (2017-19).

Homa, 31, a California native who lives in Scottsdale, Ariz., has four career PGA TOUR wins, including two in the 2021-22 season. He is currently No. 16 in the FedExCup Rankings, No. 10 in the United States Team Rankings for the Presidents Cup, and No. 22 in the Official World Golf Rankings. Homa first joined the PGA TOUR in 2014, and in addition to his four career wins, he has two Korn Ferry Tour wins.

Snedeker, 41, of Nashville, Tennessee, is a nine-time PGA TOUR winner and qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs in each of his first 15 PGA TOUR seasons, missing the Playoffs for the first time in 2022. Snedeker is one of four players who were named PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year (2007) and won the FedExCup (2012), alongside Vijay Singh, Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods.

Mitchell, 30, a native of Chattanooga, Tennessee and resident of St. Simons Island, Georgia, is in his fifth season on the PGA TOUR. The 2019 Honda Classic winner, Mitchell has a career-high top six finish in 2021-22 and is looking for his first season-ending TOUR Championship appearance, entering the BMW Championship in 38th place in the FedExCup standings. Mitchell turned pro in 2014 and played on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica (2015) and the Korn Ferry Tour (2016 and 2017) before joining the PGA TOUR at the start of the 2017-18 season.

Streelman, 43, a native of Winfield, Illinois who lives in Scottsdale, is a two-time PGA TOUR winner, most recently winning the 2014 Travelers Championship. Streelman, who enters the BMW Championship at No. 93 in the FedExCup standings, qualified for the FedExCup playoffs in each of the past 15 seasons; the only players with longer active streaks are Matt Kuchar and Adam Scott, who qualified every year during the FedExCup era (since 2007).
