Jim Hyler.

The U.S. Golf Association will have a new president.

James B. Hyler Jr. was nominated Tuesday to serve a one-year term as president of the USGA beginning Feb. 6.

Jim Vernon, the current president of the USGA, is completing his second one-year term.

As president, Hyler will lead the USGA’s professional staff and nearly 1,400 volunteers.

“To serve the game in this capacity is a special experience, and I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity,” Hyler said in a USGA news release.

Hyler, of Raleigh, N.C., is in his sixth year as a member of the USGA Executive Committee, a term that has included three years as a USGA vice president. A retired banking executive, Hyler is a 1970 graduate of Virginia Tech. He served as chairman of the President’s Council for the 1999 and 2005 U.S. Opens at Pinehurst and was instrumental in launching a chapter of The First Tee in Raleigh.

Hyler chairs three USGA committees: championship, commercial and compensation.
