-- The Legacy Agency, Inc. (“TLA”), one of the world’s leading athlete representation and sports and entertainment marketing businesses, has had three of its rising golf clients pull off an unprecedented feat on the PGA Tour, with each winning on consecutive weeks in March. This past week Matt Every rallied from four strokes down on the final day to post his first-ever PGA Win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard in Orlando, which followed a one stroke win by John Senden at the Valspar Championship on March 16 in Palm Harbour, Florida and a one stroke win by Patrick Reed at the World Golf Championships in Miami on March 9. All three are seen as some of the sport’s most marketable stars, and their recent performances appear to bear that out.
“We are very proud of the amazing effort two of our young, new faces on the PGA Tour have put forth already this year as well as John’s latest win two weeks ago, and we are looking forward to what is shaping up to be quite a season,” said TLA’s Andrew Witlieb co-founder of TLA’s sports marketing division.
“Matt, John, and Patrick are quickly becoming some of the brightest and most marketable personalities in golf, and we are working to expose them to a wide variety of new partners in the coming weeks as they continue their quality work on and off the course.”
The three wins by three different golfers is almost unprecedented for an agency, and is reflective of the type of talent TLA is putting together in their golf division. In addition to the three recent winners, TLA also represents Jim Furyk, Robert Garrigus, John Huh, and Jeff Overton among others, making their core group one of the biggest and most diverse in the sport.About TLA Worldwide
