English golfer Max Orrin has today announced that he has turned professional and signed a long term, exclusive representation contract with 4SPORTS & ENTERTAINMENT, the leading Swiss sports management agency.
Orrin, from North Foreland Golf Club in Kent, has turned professional this week following a remarkable career as an amateur. The 19 year old has been a pivotal member of the England elite squads since 2009, and has accumulated a number of high profile titles to his name during this time.
In 2012 Max became the first English golfer to win the esteemed Thunderbird Invitational held in Arizona. Combined with wins at the Kent Amateur Championship and Jaques Leglise Trophy, as well as second place finishes in the Darwin Salver, the Peter McEvoy Trophy and The Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters, Orrin ended the 2012 season at the top of the England Titleist & Footjoy Boys Order Of Merit. He also currently acts as an ambassador of The Sir Henry Cooper Trust.
This winning streak continued into 2013 when he achieved number 1 status on the World Junior Golf Rankings before posting first place results at both the South East of England Links Championship as well as the Lagonda Trophy. He reached the semi final match play rounds of both the British Amateur as well as the English Amateur earlier in the year and was a crucial member of the six man squad who took home the trophy at the European Teams Challenge held in Denmark having fought off 15 other nations in order to claim the title. Most recently, Max travelled to The Country Club, Brookline in order to compete in the US Amateur Championship where he posted a top ten finish on the stroke play leader board before heading into the match play rounds.
Max was selected as a member of the 10 man Walker Cup team who sought to defend their title at the National Golf Links of America. Following the conclusion of this event, and positioned as top of the 2013 Titleist &Footjoy Order of Merit, Max decided to turn professional and intends to play in a number of tournaments across Europe before heading to European Tour Qualifying School later in the year.
On signing with 4SPORTS, Max commented: ‘Having made the decision to turn professional, I am confident in my feeling that 4sports are the perfect team to have working alongside me in the next stages of my career. I also want to thank the England Golf Union who have supported me over the past 4 years.’
Marcus Day, Managing Director of the 4sports Golf Division added: ‘Max has already achieved a string of fantastic results in his career. We are really looking forward to working with him in order to help him achieve his next set of goals.’
