The European Tour is beginning a search for just the fourth chief executive in its history after the announcement that George O’Grady will step down.

O’Grady, who has been with the Tour for more than 40 years, confirmed on Wednesday that he has asked the board of directors to begin the process to appoint his successor.

The 65-year-old, who will remain in his role until that successor is found, became chief executive on January 1, 2005, succeeding John Jacobs – who led the Tour’s formative years from 1971 to 1974 – and Ken Schofield, who took over on January 1, 1975.
