Jeffrey Pollack Withdraws As Candidate For LPGA Commissioner
Published October 21, 2009
World Series of Poker Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack has withdrawn as a candidate to become the next commissioner of the LPGA, said a source close to the search. The loss of Pollack leaves at least two remaining candidates that have been publicly identified: USGA Chief Business Officer Pete Bevacqua and Kohlberg & Co. Senior Adviser Jon Ward. Dolphins Senior Adviser Arlen Kantarian was offered the job but turned it down, according to sources involved in the search (Jon Show, SportsBusiness Journal). GOLFWEEK.com's Adam Schupak cited a source as saying that Kantarian "pulled out because the LPGA couldn't meet his salary demands." The source also said that Pollack "was considered a darkhorse among the finalists" (GOLFWEEK.com, 10/20).
