Most Powerful in Europe announced

Golf Inc. magazine has announced the 15 Most Powerful Europeans in the golf industry, a list that includes several new names like Keith Pelley, Chief Executive of the European PGA Tour, and Charley Hull, the professional female golfer.

The magazine, which previously announced the Most Powerful people in the world, and the Most Powerful Asians in the golf industry, focused this list on the people who are influencing and impacting golf courses the most in Europe.

“The United Kingdom dominates the list, which is reflective of the country’s large number of courses,” said Jack Crittenden, Editor In Chief of Golf Inc.

The ranking will be released, along with profiles of the people, in the November/December issue of Golf Inc.  The magazine’s editors, including Trevor Ledger, who is based in Scotland, compiled the list.
