Pete Bevacqua has been offered the job as chief executive for the PGA of America and could be introduced later this week in Baltimore at the PGA's annual meeting, Golfweek magazine reported Wednesday.
Bevacqua, 41, had spent 11 years with the U.S. Golf Association as a lawyer and as the first chief business officer in 2007. He was in the running for LPGA Tour commissioner in 2009 (the job went to Mike Whan), and he resigned from the USGA in 2011. Bevacqua now works for the golf division at CAA Sports.
Joe Steranka announced in April that he would retire as CEO of the PGA of America at the end of this year.
The PGA of America, which has some 27,000 members, is to formally elect Ted Bishop as its next president this week at the annual meeting. It continues to discuss the U.S. captain for the 2014 Ryder Cup, though a decision is not expected this week.
