Higher Ground Sports Management Inc., which represents Adam Hadwin and Alena Sharp, has announced the signing of former national amateur Team player Chris Hemmerich, of Kitchener, Ont.
Hemmerich’s professional career already includes two top-10 finishes on PGA Tour Canada, where Hemmerich received four starts late in 2014.
“I couldn’t be happier to be joining the Higher Ground team. Having an experienced player manager looking after my sponsorship portfolio and helping me navigate the professional golf landscape gives me a great deal of comfort,” said Hemmerich.
“I know we’ll be doing some exciting things together and I’m looking forward to the partnership,” he added.
As Hemmerich’s management team, Higher Ground’s services will include sourcing and development of income producing endorsement opportunities, as well as development and marketing of Hemmerich’s personal brand.
“Chris represents exactly the kind of individual our firm seeks to align with, possessing exceptional talent on the course and immense character off the course”, said George Sourlis, president of Higher Ground Sports Management.
After an amateur career that included the 2014 Ontario Men’s Amateur championship, Hemmerich turned professional last August.
With full status on PGA Tour Canada in 2015, Hemmerich will play his first full season on that tour where his goal will be to finish inside the top five on the year-end money list and move on to the Web .com Tour in 2016
