Tim Mickelson Now Phil's Full Time Bagman, Client Jon Rahm Stays With Lagardere 

For Immediate Release...

JON RAHM UPDATES MANAGEMENT TEAM AT LAGARDÈRE SPORTS

New York, Dec. 1, 2017 – Jon Rahm, the No. 4 ranked golf player in the world, today has updated his management team at Lagardere Sports going into 2018.   

Tim Mickelson, who was previously Rahm’s agent, has transitioned to serving as the full-time caddy for Phil Mickelson going forward. Rahm’s team at Lagardère Sports for management and marketing representation now includes Steve Loy, President of Golf, and Jeff Koski, Player Manager, in the U.S., and Jamie Evans, Director of European Golf, in Europe. 

“Coach Mickelson will always be important to me and has done many good things to support my career, and I wish him and Phil well in their new partnership,” said Rahm. “I am excited to continue working with Steve and Jeff, who originally recruited me to Lagardère Sports, and have Jaime join the team from Europe. I also have a great team around me, starting with my family, girlfriend, Kelley, Caddy, Adam, Teacher and Trainer, and my Sports Psychologist. I am really excited to continue working with the team at Lagardère Sports and get the 2018 season under way.”

Rarely has so much been said about so little.

Yo Doc - totally agree. Nuthin’ like having a good team around you, just knew I’ve been doin’ something wrong ...

Is it just me, or is going from agent for an up and coming star to caddie for a 46 year old declining star a massive double demotion?

demotion - what?
how can a life decision be a demotion? He's decided to caddie for his brother for the rest of his career, pretty nice idea I think. I'm sure financial issues have been worked out to please everyone - Phil could easily match his previous salary. I'd personally think that travelling the world, spending time with my brother (who happens to be a famous golfer) in some beautiful places, could be a very special few years.

I'm not sure what you think is so glamourous about being an agent / coach.

100% Press Agent - also, the situation with Rahm has changed pretty dramatically. A year ago, he was just another rookie hoping to make it on Tour, so a fledging (albeit highly connected) agent such as Tim would work out well for both - essentially Tim would be learning on the job, with assistance from the Mgmt Company, and he could evolve with Rahm - just like Loy did with Phil. But Rahm exploded into the top tier of players, he probably needs more top level agent attention. Then you have the opportunity with Phil, seems like a win-win. I'm sure when he hangs up the bag, he will be put back in the agent biz for another rookie or something.

Would you rather be Rahm’s agent or Phil’s caddie?

Seems clear to me.

Rarely, have I seen a document with poorer punctuation. Which of his well compensated agents (or Agents) wrote and proof read this press release? If I were to mark it up, it would have more red marks than a Jon Rahm scorecard.

Note: I typed this on my iPad, so please excuse any grammatical errors.
