Former Walker Cup winner and European Tour star Richard McEvoy is the latest player to join Jenahura’s blossoming stable of tournament professionals.
The agreement will see Jenahura manage Richard’s travel, entries and commercial deals and provide support from their Tournament Players Fund. In addition, Jenahura’s logo will be embroidered on McEvoy’s clothing for the remainder of 2016.
Martyn Norris, Managing Director at Jenahura commented, “Having narrowly missed out on retaining his European Tour card last year I was really impressed by the way Richard regained his card at Q-School – he showed an awful lot of character aside from a great deal of talent! The hunger and desire to advance his career is clearly still burning and I truly believe he can go on to achieve great things. He is a terrific fella and is a perfect brand ambassador for our growing business.”
McEvoy said, “I’ve had a solid start to the year and I am delighted that Jenahura are prepared to invest and help me with everything I need to take my game to another level. My swing feels really good and I can’t wait to head back out to South Africa in a couple of weeks. I first met Martyn in Kazakhstan and it was clear that he has a passion to really support his players. We had a chat at Q-School in November and it didn’t take us long to agree terms, I’m excited to be working with Jenahura.”
Martyn Norris added “This is a fantastic day for Jenahura. To have someone of Richard’s quality sign for us is a not only a great thrill but also signals our intention to commit and invest in a small pool of elite, hardworking golfers. These are very exciting times!”
The contract was signed on a blustery afternoon at Hankley Common Golf Club in Surrey.
