NEW YORK, New York (Ronald Blum/AP) — The chief executive officer of the PGA of America says golf must concentrate on diversity to compete for fans.

Speaking at the Sports Diversity & Inclusion Symposium on Wednesday on Citi Field, Pete Bevacqua told the audience “golf realizes it has to really make some fundamental changes and unbelievable progress in this area if the game is going to continue to be healthy.”

“If we’re not more diverse in the next 25, 50, 100 years, the sport’s in trouble,” he said. “So instead of hiding from that, we’re embracing that, and we’re trying to institute those changes at every aspect of our organization.”

ATLANTA, Georgia (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Jordan Spieth treated the Tour Championship as if it were a major. He played like it was, too.

Looking for a fitting finish to a sensational season, Spieth poured in putts from all over East Lake and never gave Henrik Stenson or anyone else much of a chance Sunday. His final stroke was an 8-foot par putt that was right in the heart for a 1-under 69, and he leaned back with a smile of pure satisfaction.

The 22-year-old Texan became golf’s first $22 million man — a PGA Tour record with just over $12 million in prize money, and the $10 million bonus for the FedEx Cup.

“This is incredible,” Spieth said. “This is an event where we approach it like a major championship because we know this is possible at the end of it.”
