Wallace Booth signs up with
Hambric Stellar Golf

Wallace Booth today made his latest significant stride in his young professional career when he signed with the global sports management company, Hambric Stellar Golf.
The 24 year old from Comrie, Perthshire, who turned professional immediately after The Walker Cup last September, is the latest signing for a company with no shortage of credentials. Rocky Hambric, the CEO, started his management career with three-time major winner Larry Nelson and has since managed major champions such as Justin Leonard, Phil Mickelson, Corey Pavin, Larry Mize, Scott Simpson and Bob Tway, to mention just a few.
Booth, who graduated from Augusta State University in 2007 with a degree in Business Marketing, had offers from several management companies but stated that his decision to sign with Hambric Stellar Golf was ultimately very easy.
“I looked at all my options carefully, weighed up the advantages and disadvantages with each company and found that the disadvantages column with Hambric Stellar Golf was empty. They are a global company, have experience in abundance and have a great family feel, amongst many other attributes. In the end, it was an easy decision”.
Booth will be plying his trade in 2010 predominantly on The European Challenge Tour after missing out on securing his main tour card at the qualifying school in November. He acknowledges that it will be a great training ground for him to develop as a player and sees the Challenge Tour as great place to start his career and learn quickly about the rigours of professional golf.
“I’m really excited about the future and I know the Challenge Tour holds the key to my future. I feel comfortable with the whole team I have around me from my coach to my management company. It means that I will be able to focus all my energies into my golf and reach the potential I know I can, trusting that everything else is taken care of around me”.
Robert Duck, who heads up the European headquarters in London and manages the affairs of European stars such as Oliver Wilson, Francesco Molinari, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and Sandy Lyle, says he is delighted with Booth’s decision to join them. “We are extremely selective about our recruitment targets and we have had our eyes on Wallace for a few years now. We thoroughly look forward to forging a long and successful partnership with him”.
