Typically, On To The Next One is focused on football and basketball players leaving their agents for new representation. However, yesterday Darren Rovell of CNBC tweeted the news that PGA Tour golfer Matt Kuchar (currently ranked #9 in the world) has become Mark Steinberg’s first big client (not named Tiger Woods) since Steinberg moved from IMG to join basketball agent Jeff Schwartz and baseball agents Casey Close and Victor Menocal at Excel Sports Management.
Matt Kuchar is no stranger to the world of athlete representation. Excel Sports Management becomes the 5th agency that has represented Kuchar in his career. The list of Kuchar’s former agencies of record includes Blue Giraffe Sports, CSE (Career Sports & Entertainment), Crown Sports Management, and most recently, Peter Jacobsen Sports.
