Former Rookie of the
Year Casey joins Ryder Cup heroes Darren Clarke, Lee Westwood,
Paul McGinley, England cricketers Michael Vaughan, Marcus Trescothick,
Jimmy Anderson and Matthew Hoggard among many other world-famous
sportsmen at ISM.
Steve Loy, president and chief executive officer of Gaylord, said
he was looking forward to a long-term relationship with ISM. “We
have always been most respectful of ISM and the relationship Chubby
has with his clients,” he added. “We feel very comfortable
and compatible with the relationship and the representation they
will give Paul Casey”.
Chandler said he was delighted and proud that Paul had asked ISM
to jointly represent him. “There is a new crop of exciting
youngsters bursting through and Paul is at the head of affairs,”
he added of the recent Benson and Hedges champion.
Cheltenham-born Casey spent four years at Arizona State University
and during his collegiate days broke records previously held by
his Gaylord colleague Phil Mickelson and world No.1 Tiger Woods.
During the 1999 Walker Cup, Casey became only the third player
from Great Britain and Ireland in 77 years to win all his four
matches and after turning professional won the Gleneagles Scottish
PGA in only his 11th start on the European Tour. The ANZ Championship
in Australia followed early in 1993 and his greatest triumph to
date was the last Benson and Hedges at The Belfry when he won
by four shots from Padraig Harrington.
