Reinier Saxton has announced that he has signed with global sports management company, IMG.
The 21-year-old turned professional in June following a glittering amateur career which included becoming only the second Dutch player in 113 years to win the coveted 2008 British Amateur Championship title.
Guy Kinnings, IMG’s Director of Golf, EAME, whose team represents the likes of Tiger Woods, Paul Casey, Sergio Garcia, Padraig Harrington and Michelle Wie, said: “Reinier has had an excellent amateur career and is a very exciting prospect. We are delighted that he has selected IMG to manage him around the world and look forward to being part of his team as he embarks on this exciting stage of his career.”
Saxton underlined his potential year by winning the 2009 Spanish Men’s Amateur Golf Championship as well as making the cut in the Memorial tournament on the US PGA Tour.
“I am thrilled to have turned professional and am really looking forward to the years ahead,” said the young star. “Of course, this week I am especially excited about playing in the KLM Open and I am very grateful for the special invite I have been given to play in my national Open.”
