TLA Golf has strong presence in year-end Tour Championship
TLA Worldwide plc (AIM: TLA) (“TLA” or the “Company”), the athlete representation and sports marketing business, is pleased to announce that four of its clients are taking part in this year’s TOUR Championship – Jim Furyk, Robert Garrigus, John Senden and John Huh, who is the only Rookie to qualify for the TOUR Championship. This tournament is an end of season playoff for the best 30 players on the PGA TOUR. This is the highest number of competing clients TLA’s golf division has had, sharing the lead with one other company for the most players represented.
This achievement marks a great end for the season, in which TLA signed PGA TOUR standouts, Jeff Overton and John Huh as new clients and saw over 30 top-10 PGA TOUR finishes from our entire roster of professionals. We are also delighted to report that Jim Furyk was selected as one of Team Captain’s Davis Love III’s picks for his eighth consecutive Ryder Cup.
Since flotation, TLA has selectively increased its roster of PGA TOUR professionals by 30% which, coupled with our clients’ strong play, we expect to have a positive revenue impact in 2013 and beyond.
TLA CEO Mike Principe commented, “We are thrilled at the success of our golf division, which continues to go from strength to strength. In a business where success breeds success, the achievements and increased marketability of our clients will have a beneficial effect on our ability to attract and recruit other quality players and drive future revenue.”
