PGA Tour Commissioner Timothy W. Finchem, a 1973 graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law, will return May 18 to deliver the commencement address to the Class of 2008 on the Law School's Holcombe Green Lawn.
"The graduation speaker is charged with the task of sparking inspiration and confidence in our class," said Brian Leung, president of the Student Bar Association, who helped choose this year's speaker. "Mr. Finchem was a very clear choice, as his distinguished career is marked with personal drive and extraordinary success."
Finchem is the third commissioner of the PGA Tour and has served in that position since 1994. He joined the tour staff as vice president of business affairs in 1987 before becoming deputy commissioner and chief operating officer in 1989.
