Fred Perpall of Dallas, Texas, was elected to serve as the 67th president of the USGA at the association’s annual meeting in Napa, Calif. Perpall will serve a 3-year term leading the USGA Executive Committee, the all-volunteer policy-making board that provides strategic direction and oversight to the association’s full-time staff.

“We talk too much about what separates us, and not enough about what unites us,” Perpall said. “In golf, we’re a community. When we lean in together, when we include more people in the game, not only will the game get better, but our lives will get better, too.”

Perpall was first elected to the executive committee in 2019 and has served on the governance, nominating and compensation and leadership development committees. In 2021 he became the chair of the USGA championship committee, which introduced the U.S. Adaptive Open during his tenure along with the announcement of several USGA championship anchor sites. He was appointed president-elect during last year’s annual meeting.

“The USGA is stronger with global business leaders like Fred on our board,” said Mike Whan, CEO of the USGA. “Beyond his work with golf in the last three years, Fred clearly loves the game and wants to leave it better than he found it. We couldn’t ask for better energy to propel our strategy and mission, and we’re rolling up our sleeves with that inspiration and drive to guide us.”

Perpall welcomes three new members elected to the USGA Executive Committee, who will also each serve 3-year terms. The members include Leslie Henry of Houston, Texas; Bryan Lewis of South Haven, Mich.; and Michael McCarthy of San Francisco, Calif.
