Former United States Golf Association (USGA) Girls Junior champion and 11-year LPGA Tour golfer Emilee Klein has joined Lagardère Unlimited’s Golf Division as a player manager. She will work directly with Eddie Smith, who currently represents 9 LPGA golfers, including Wendy Ward, who was on the same golf team as Klein at Arizona State University on NCAA championship teams in 1993-94.
Klein also has experience coaching amateur golfers. She coached golf at the University of Central Florida and San Diego State University. “I’ve enjoyed each step in my career,” said Klein, “but I’m very excited about this new chapter, returning in a new capacity to the LPGA Tour, where I gained so much experience and still have many good friends.”
“Emilee has been driven by success inside and outside the ropes for 25 years,” said Steve Loy, President of Lagardère Unlimited’s Golf Division. “She is a great new asset for Lagardère Unlimited.”
Emilee will be a fresh new addition to Lagardère Unlimited after it lost golf agent Brian Newton, an industry veteran whose clients included Nick Watney, Jeff Overton, Arron Oberholser, and Bryce Molder.
