23-year-old Yorkshireman Jamie Bower (pictured here playing for England) has joined the depth chart of highly talented young English players at Georgia Golf, led by the World number 24, Tyrrell Hatton. Other young players managed by Georgia Golf include Ashton Turner (20), Jigger Thomson (20) and Bradley Moore (19).
Jamie Bower has represented Yorkshire from 14 years old and England since he was 18. In 2016 he won the Brabazon Trophy and represented England including at the Eisenhower Trophy in Mexico. Jamie is a highly rated player and is taught by European Tour coach Alan Thompson. He is currently ranked 12 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings.
Jamie Bower said: “I was approached by several management companies. I chose Georgia Golf because of the combination of superb technical and commercial services which have seen world class players like Tyrrell Hatton and Jamie Donaldson succeed. Their passion for young player development is very special and I feel very much at home with the traditional family values of the company. Also, I know their players very well so it’s going to be awesome being part of a journey with my good friends.”
Danny Wardrop, Director of Golf at Georgia added “We are thrilled to be working with Jamie. He’s a great talent with a fantastic pedigree but more importantly for us he possesses great character. This is fantastic testament to his family and Yorkshire/England Golf. We will work incredibly hard to further Jamie’s career on and off the golf course.”
Jamie will play at least seven times on the Challenge Tour in 2017 and on the EuroPro Tour. He will be sponsored by Tile Mountain plus others as they come on board in 2017.
