Wasserman Media Group To Acquire SFX Golf

Earlier this week, a good friend in the golf industry tipped me off to a deal between Wasserman Media Group (WMG) and SFX Golf, which would make SFX Golf a part of WMG’s Golf Division.  Furthermore, my source tells me that it is likely that Jay Danzi, Director, Golf Division at Wasserman Media Group, will not remain with the new WMG Golf Division.

SFX Golf currently represents roughly 30 players on the PGA Tour including John Daly, Scott Verplank, DJ Trahan, and Rory Sabbatini.  A full list of PGA Tour clients is listed here.  SFX Golf also has popular players on the Nationwide Tour, Champions Tour, LPGA Tour, and World Tour.

At this point, I have not been able to get confirmation of the deal from anyone at SFX or WMG.

My first impression is that it could be good to have Wasserman taking a more active role in professional golf. Hope so…
