Memorial director dies at 74

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) – John G. Hines, former executive director of the Memorial Tournament and general manager of Muirfield Village, died Wednesday on his 74th birthday.

The Memorial Tournament disclosed Hines’ death but did not provide any details.

Hines, affectionately called “Coach,” was a constant presence around the suburban Columbus course.

He joined Jack Nicklaus’ Golden Bear Corp. in 1980 and helped to manage more than 30 Memorial Tournaments in addition to handling the 1987 Ryder Cup, 1992 U.S. Amateur and the 1998 Solheim Cup.

Hines’ event management company also was in charge of The Presidents Cup last fall at Muirfield Village.
