There has been no golf administrator who had a greater influence on the game
of golf than Joseph C. Dey Jr.
His was a 40-year run that brought about sweeping change and was executed in
the most dignified manner. Dey served as Executive Director of the United States
Golf Association from 1934-1968, and then as Commissioner of the PGA TOUR from
The following year he was named captain of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of
St. Andrews, Scotland, the game’s highest honorary position. It is unlikely that
anyone else will ever again hold these three positions.
“Joe was a man of great integrity, one who was respected by players,
officials and everyone in the game,” said Michael Bonallack, Secretary of the
Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews. “I found you could learn a lot from
Joe-not just about golf, but about life.”
