The newly crowned Alfred Dunhill Links Champion, Oliver Wilson, has returned to Hambric Sports after a period of almost 2 years away.
Oli had found himself in 786th position on the Official World Golf Rankings after a tied 47th at the Kazakhstan Open on the Challenge Tour. The decision he then faced was whether to play at the EMC Roma Challenge or accept a sponsors invitation to compete at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Happily he chose the latter and the rest is now recorded in the annals of golfing legend. The win moved Oli 630 places on the OWGR to 163rd in the world, and granted him the opportunity to compete in the European Tour Final Series. The outpouring of support from the golfing world was incredible and it showcased what a popular guy Oli is.
The CEO of Hambric Sports, Rocky Hambric said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Oliver back as a client of Hambric Sports. As the door always remained open, and we always remained friends, it feels like he had never left. Watching Oli win the Alfred Dunhill was such a proud moment for everyone associated with him and to have his wife Lauren waiting for him on the 18th green will be a memory they can cherish forever. When we opened our European office in late 2002, Oliver was the first client we signed as he was turning professional out of Augusta State, so the relationship we have with him runs deep. We are truly delighted to welcome Oliver home.”
Speaking about his return, Oliver said: “I am delighted to be returning to the Hambric Sports Family after a couple of years away. They have been there for me throughout my entire career and it feels like the right fit to enable me to achieve my dreams. That time away has made it clear to me that Hambric are the right addition to my team and I look forward to working with them again in the future.
Oli we are so proud of how you have handled yourself over the last few years when the results were not going your way. To achieve what you did against some of the best players in the world, and to be as gracious as you have been as a result, shows that you are a true class act both on and off the golf course. We are all very excited about the future.
