Jeff Hall has served as the United States Golf Association’s managing director of the Rules of Golf, Competitions & Amateur Status since 2009. He oversees day-to-day activities of the Rules and Competitions Department as they relate to all amateur championships.
He began his USGA career in 1990 as manager for Rules of Golf. Hall came to the Association after serving as tournament director for the Metropolitan Section of the PGA of America.
From 1996-2003, Hall was directly involved with all Rules of Golf Committee activities, including preparation of agendas, drafting and coordinating with the R&A Rules staff and Rules Committee.
His responsibilities changed, beginning in 2004 when he assumed new Rules and golf-course related responsibilities in connection with the U.S. Open, U.S. Senior Open, U.S. Amateur and the Walker Cup Match. Since 2007, he has been responsible for all course setup and Rules related issues at the U.S. Senior Open.
He also serves as an instructor with the PGA/USGA Workshop on the Rules of Golf programs.
In 1986, Hall graduated from Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Ala., where he earned a degree in marketing. He was a member of the Hawks’ 1986 NAIA national champion golf team and earned Academic All-America honors in the same year. The championship is the highlight of his golf career that began at the age of 7 when his father introduced him to the game.
