Chubby Chandler’s International Sports Management has announced the launch of a partnership with Sydney based AJB Sports Management.

AJB Sports, under the guidance of owner Tony Bouffler, have operated out of Sydney for the past 10 years and has built an impressive stable of Australian players including Greg Chalmers, Robert Allenby and Karrie Webb.

Chubby Chandler’s ISM includes Major winners Darren Clarke, Charl Schwartzel and Louis Oosthuizen as well as England’s Lee Westwood.

Chandler said: “We already have offices in the UK, USA and India and now we can add Sydney to that list.

“In joining forces with Tony and his group in Sydney it will enable him to reassure his players that they will have worldwide support on all the major golf tours and exposure to the commercial opportunities that flow from that.”

Bouffler said: “This is a tremendous opportunity for our clients and prospective clients to avail themselves of the services of one of the most experienced managers in world golf.

“Chubby has been an icon of European and world golf since he commenced in 1989 and my clients are thrilled to become more entrenched with Chubby and ISM.

“Chubby recently attended both the Presidents Cup and the Australian PGA Championship in Australia and saw first hand the quality of our players and tournaments. This gives us both the international structure required to manage players on golf’s world stage.”
