WSG to promote golf star Arjun Atwal

MUMBAI: World Sport Group (WSG) and Blue Giraffe Enterprises (BGE) have announced the creation of a relationship whereby the sports marketing company will exclusively promote and manage the affairs of Indian golf star Arjun Atwal in Asia.
Atwal became the first player from India to win on the US PGA Tour this season when he triumphed in the Wyndham Championship and as his career goes from strength to strength, he is looking to solidify his support team.

BGE CEO Bobby Kreusler said, “We feel that WSG is uniquely positioned within the Indian and Asian markets to exclusively assist us with promoting Arjun and effectively service these markets.”
WSG VP golf Patrick Feizal Joyce said, "We are also really looking forward to working with Blue Giraffe Enterprises who are a new partner for us and one with which we hope to build a long and fruitful relationship.”
Atwal finished equal fifth in the $1.25 million Hero Honda India Open yesterday at Delhi Golf Club and is looking forward to the new relationship.

“I have played in many events promoted by World Sport Group over the years and have many friends there so I feel it is an exciting and sensible option to take. It is important for me to still play in Asia as much as I can as this is where it all started for me. World Sport Group have an enormous amount of experience here and I feel a lot can be achieved with such a strong partner,” said Atwal.

The 37-year-old Indian’s last victory on the Asian Tour came in 2008 Malaysian Open, which was his seventh victory on the circuit. He topped the Asian Tour Order of Merit in 2003 before furthering his career in the US.
