Andy Sullivan and Jack Senior turn pro

Published:

Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup stars Andy Sullivan and Jack Senior have joined sports management group Wasserman Media Group, signalling their intent to turn professional.

Warwickshire based Sullivan, 24, has enjoyed a fantastic few years on the Amateur circuit. As well as his success at the Walker Cup, his career highlights to date include finishing 2nd in the 2010 Titleist Footjoy EGU Order of Merit, shooting a record first-round 10 under par on his way to winning the prestigious Hampshire Salver and finishing 2nd at the Lee Westwood trophy.

Sullivan said: "I'm thrilled to be joining Wasserman. Their global sports client list is one of the best in the world and being part of a company who successfully manage the likes of Jack Wilshere, Steven Gerrard as well as obviously Jason Day and Rickie Fowler can only be beneficial to me in the long term. I'm looking forward to really pushing on with my golf and making a name for myself in the future under Brendan's guidance."

Senior, 23, won the Egyptian Amateur in 2010, allowing him to qualify for the Egyptian Open - a European Challenge Tour event - in which he powered his way to a top 20 finish. He started the 2011 season in spectacular fashion by winning the prestigious New South Wales Matchplay Championship, the Lytham Trophy and the Hampshire Hog. In August 2011, Senior reached the semi-finals in the US Amateur Championship – playing some superb golf in the process.

On signing for Wasserman, Senior commented: "Brendan and his team have a proven track record in golf and I'm looking forward to working with them. I'm really excited about the future and am confident that I can achieve great things with Wasserman."

Wasserman Vice President & Head of Golf (EMEA), Brendan Taylor, said of the signings: "We are delighted to welcome both Andy and Jack to Wasserman. They are both extremely talented individuals with great futures ahead of them, and we're looking forward to helping them achieve their goals."
