“Turning professional is going to be a challenge that I relish and I am really looking forward to competing against the best players in the world. I am confident that Hambric Sports is the right fit for me as they have a long history in signing amateur golfers like myself and I’m looking forward to them guiding me through the early stages of my career, like they have done with their other successful clients”, said Gillberg.
