James Joins Clarke and Westwood On Road To Glory
Lewis James, one of the finest golfing talents to emerge from Wales since Ian Woosnam jumped down from his father’s tractor to make hay on the world’s fairways, has joined International Sports Management.
The Cardiff 20-year-old, last year’s Welsh men’s champion of champions, will team up with Ryder Cup heroes Darren Clarke, Lee Westwood and Paul McGinley in the stable which includes many of England’s current cricketing stars.
James, whose father Chris plays off three, is coached by Denis Pugh, currently helping former seven-time European No.1 Colin Montgomerie re-discover his form.
All-round sportsman Jones, a former semi-professional left-wing back with Port Talbot and Barry Town, chose golf after a glittering amateur career and hopes to earn full playing rights on the European Tour for next season.
“I am looking forward to being represented by the best management group in the business and joining all their current stars,” said Jones.
“Lewis is definitely one for the future and we will do everything we can to help him realise his dreams,” said Andrew ‘Chubby’ Chandler, managing director of ISM.
