Australian amateur Curtis Luck signs with IMG

Curtis Luck likely still has five months or so remaining as an amateur golfer, but he has already figured out who will represent him when he makes the leap to the pro ranks.

IMG announced Monday that the 20-year-old Australian has signed with the company for worldwide management and marketing representation.

“I’m delighted to be signing with the team at IMG,” Luck said. “The brand speaks for itself in terms of the players they represent and all the great events they run. Their global network of offices gives me confidence that I will be well looked after as I travel round the world.”

Luck, currently the world’s No. 2-ranked amateur golfer, took the golf world by storm in 2016. He first won the Western Australian Open, a pro event on the PGA Tour of Australasia, in May. He then won the U.S. Amateur in August, defeating Brad Dalke in the final at Oakland Hills in August, before capturing the Asia-Pacific Amateur in October.

The latter two events award Masters invitations (Luck will tee it up this April at Augusta National as an amateur), and the U.S. Amateur also gets him into the U.S. Open and British Open, as well as likely a handful of PGA Tour events.

However, Luck, who was also a member if Australia’s victorious World Amateur Team Championship squad last fall, will likely only stay amateur until the U.S. Open at Erin Hills.

Luck also won the Western Australian Open on the PGA Tour of Australasia and was a member of the victorious Australian team at the World Amateur Team Championship.
