Ben Tuthill has been named chairman of the Northeast Amateur Invitational, replacing Denny Glass, it was announced on Tuesday morning.
Tuthill, 32, is a financial adviser in Providence, R.I., and has been a member at Wannamoisett Country Club since 2007, with his family dating to 1988 at the club.
Tuthill played in the Northeast Amateur in 2001, 2004, 2009 and 2012. He is a former Rhode Island Amateur champion.
"I am extremely excited about leading the Northeast for years to come," said Tuthill. "This tournament has been a part of my life since 1988 and I have had the pleasure of taking part as a caddie, player, committee member and sponsor through the years. My goal will be to attract the strongest field in amateur golf and to ensure the players and the Wannamoisett membership continues to have a wonderful experience the third week of June."
Tuthill is the second replacement that the tournament has named, coming weeks after Joe Sprague Jr. had to step down after accepting a position with the USGA.
