SPORTFIVE has expanded its golf talent representation capabilities in Europe with the addition of London-based golf representation agency Alpha STM (“Alpha Sports”) to its global golf business.
As part of the addition, Duncan Reid joins SPORTFIVE as the Senior Vice President, European Golf. Previously the Managing Director of Alpha Sports, a management agency founded by Reid in 2016, Reid will now be responsible for leading the agency’s recruiting and servicing of up-and-coming European-based professional golf talent. Along with Reid, Nick Winder also joins the agency from Alpha Sports as a Player Manager in London. They both join David Rawluk, an existing Player Manager, in the agency’s Golf Division based in Dublin.
