One of Europe’s most promising golfers, Joachim B. Hansen, has today announced his decision to sign with Hambric Sports.

Hansen is entering his 10th year as a professional, having joined the paid ranks back in 2010. 

2018 was JB’s best professional season to date, having won both the Turkish Airlines Challenge and the Made in Denmark Challenge, en route to becoming the second Dane to top the Challenge Tour Rankings.

Having earned his European Tour playing privileges through the Challenge Tour for the 2019 season, Hansen went on to retain his main tour card and full playing rights for 2020, by finishing 49th on the Race to Dubai rankings and playing his way into the season ending, DP World Tour Championship. 

Hansen’s best results of the 2019 season on the European Tour came at the Amundi Open de France (2nd), Mutuactivos Open de Espana (tied 4th), Oman Open (tied 6th) and the Turkish Airlines Open (tied 10th).

“I am very excited about becoming a part of Hambric Sports”, said Hansen. “After our meetings and talks it felt like the perfect place for me. They are one of the biggest management companies out there and I think we will be a great fit for each other, as I try to get further up the world rankings.”

Currently Joachim is ranked 147th in the Official World Golf Rankings and will get his 2020 European Tour season underway at the South African Open later this month. 

Hansen will be managed by fellow Dane, Mark Haastrup. CEO of Hambric Sports, Rocky Hambric, said: “We are very excited to welcome Joachim to Hambric Sports. He is already an established and well respected professional and we look forward to beginning our work with Joachim and helping him reach new heights”.

With offices in Dallas, Los Angeles, Dublin and London, 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 Hansen, the list of clients includes Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Thorbjørn Olesen, Jordan Smith, Beau Hossler, The Højgaard twins and Scottie Scheffler.
