David Fay retires

As was reported Christmas Eve, USGA executive director David Fay will retire.

Fay's decision didn't garner the media hype that befell LeBron James during his television special on the worldwide leader, ESPN, but the impact should still resonate within the golfing world.

Fay was the guy most people could hear during the United States Open on certain rules questions that the broadcasting crew needed answering.

Nowadays, other veteran rules officials are brought in for those answers in important tournaments, but during the beginning, Fay was that guy.

More importantly, though, Fay made a strong effort to bring golf back to the Olympics and traditional public courses like Bethpage Black served as a host to the U.S. Open - the oldest major championship in America.
