Who We Are
Managing Director, Rules and Open Championships
Jeff Hall started at the USGA in 1990 and served as Manager, Rules of Golf. Hall came to the USGA 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. From 2007-2016, he was responsible for all course set-up and Rules related issues at the U.S. Senior Open.
In March of 2011, Hall’s responsibilities continued to evolve as he was asked to oversee the day-to-day activities of all aspects of the Rules and Competitions Department including Rules of Golf, competitions and championship administration. Currently, he is responsible for the conduct of the U.S. Open "inside the ropes" while also overseeing the development of the overall inside the ropes strategy and administration for all four USGA Open championships.
He also served as an instructor with the PGA/USGA Workshop on the Rules of Golf programs from 1991-2017.
Hall graduated from Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Ala. where he earned a degree in marketing in 1986. While attending Huntingdon he was a member of the 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 seven when his father introduced him to the game.
