Ponte Vedra Beach, FL ( - The PGA Tour has named Jay Monahan to the post of deputy commissioner, effective April 1.

Monahan, who was most recently the PGA Tour's head of corporate marketing and sponsor relations, first joined the organization in 2008 as the executive director of The Players Championship.

"Even though the PGA Tour continues to grow and prosper, this step is being taken to further strengthen our organizational structure, enhance our management coordination, and ultimately to continue to deliver on three key pieces of our core business: driving benefits to our players, growing the charity support in the communities where we play and doing our part in golf to help grow and protect this great game," PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said in a statement.

Monahan will report directly to Finchem and is the first deputy commissioner since Finchem was promoted to the position before taking over as commissioner in 1994.

Finchem, who is under contract through 2016, is currently in his 20th year as commissioner.
