Ted Bishop served as the 38th President of the PGA of America, the world’s largest working sports organization. Many in golf viewed Bishop’s two-year term as PGA President in 2013-14 as one of the most eventful in the 100-year history of the association. Golf Digest’s Jaime Diaz says it best, “Ted Bishop’s progressive tenure as president of the PGA of America seemed to pack 10 years into two and raised the profile and prestige of the organization.”
Twice named by Golf World magazine as a “Newsmaker of the Year” with 29 days left in his term, Bishop was impeached by the PGA for remarks he made on social media which it deemed to be “sexist” in nature.
