Bob served on the USGA Regional Affairs Committee from 2004-2016.

The Committee is the eyes and ears of the USGA as its members are involved with USGA championships, the Rules of Golf, Rules of Amateur Status, the USGA Handicap System, SRGAs and grassroots golf programs.

During this time, Bob also served briefly on the USGA Joe Dey Award Committee, an annual award which recognizes an individual’s meritorious service to the game as a volunteer.
