James Heath

2016 was an extraordinary year on and off the golf course for James Heath. The stylish Englishman became a father for the first time and returned to the winners circle with an impressive victory in the SSE Scottish Hydro Challenge which included a round of 62 in his winning total of 21-under par.  Two weeks later he qualified, for the first time to play in The Open at Royal Troon.

James Heath turned professional at the end of 2004 following a hugely successful amateur career in which he won the English Amateur Championship and the Lytham Trophy in 2004.  Following some early success as a professional, it’s fair to say that James has spent some time in the golfing wilderness but in the past two years there have been real signs that his career is moving in the right direction once more and we are delighted to represent him.

James is a prodigious talent and we believe his best years are ahead of him.  He is motivated, determined and has genuine star quality.  Don’t be surprised to see his name at the top of European Tour leaderboards very soon.
