Hambric Welcomes John Oda

Hambric Sports is proud to welcome First Team All-American John Oda to the HSM family, as he announces his decision to turn professional. This comes after a stellar collegiate career at UNLV, which saw him register four individual titles and All-American honours, in each of his three seasons.

The Honolulu native posted the second-best career scoring average in UNLV history, surpassing marks set by Adam Scott & Charley Hoffman, while trailing only the career stroke average of Ryan Moore. Perhaps the most pedigreed amateur to come from the Hawaiian Islands, Oda twice qualified for the Sony Open in Hawaii, including 2012, where he competed as a 15-year old.

A medalist at this year’s U.S. Open Sectional Qualifying, John tested his game under major championship conditions at Erin Hills, before embarking on a busy amateur schedule. This was highlighted by ties for 4th and 6th place at the Sahalee Players Championship and Pacific Coast Amateur respectively. Oda capped off his amateur career, by reaching third round of matchplay at the U.S. Amateur, in Riviera Country Club, before turning professional. He was beaten by eventual winner Doc Redman.

John will shift his focus to Web.com Tour Qualifying as he begins his professional career. He is signed up for First Stage at The
Crosby, in San Diego, which takes place from October 3rd – 6th.

Oda will be managed by Walker Huddy.

With offices in Dallas, Los Angeles & Dublin, Hambric Sports specializes in the management of professional golfers, and markets its clients on a global basis. This includes seeking and negotiating income-producing opportunities within the golf industry and corporate world. In addition to Oda, the list of clients includes Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Thorbjørn Olesen, Martin Laird, Ricardo Gouveia, Cody Gribble, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and rising star Beau Hossler.

Hambric Clients shine in The Middle East

 AtlantisDubai-300x300
The Middle Eastern Swing on the European Tour has come and gone. Hambric Sports clients Thorbjørn Olesen and Brooks Koepka competed in all 3 events on the swing with Francesco Molinari competing in Dubai last week.
It was a very successful couple of weeks for our clients with Thorbjørn finishing tied 3rd and narrowly missing out on the playoff in Doha at the Qatar Masters and a tied 5th in Dubai at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Brooks also followed on from a strong week in Doha with a tied 3rd finish in Dubai just coming up short on the final day. Francesco finished off strong on his return to competitive play carding a final round 68 and finishing in a tie for 13th.
Congratulations to all involved for a great few weeks.
