Wasserman Adds To Its Golf Division

Not too long ago, I was writing about Wasserman launching a rugby division. Well, the global sports management company is not done with its expansion plans, and recently announced that it is also adding to its existing golf division.

The golf division is expanding by way of Wasserman acquiring Mullhaupt Management and it will bring on board Chris Mullhaupt as its Vice President of Golf. Mullhaupt has more than a decade of experience representing pro golfers. He also played college golf at Ole Miss.

Mullhaupt represents a number of athletes who participate on both the LPGA and PGA Tours. His roster includes world #2 and Olympic Gold medalist Nelly Korda, Jessica Korda, former U.S. Amateur champions Curtis Luck and Doc Redman, as well as Bud Cauley, Braden Thornberry, Zac Blair, and Pauline Roussin-Bouchard.
