New sponsor – Guardian Wealth Management
I am excited to announce my new sponsorship with Guardian Wealth Management (GWM). I’m proud to be the global ambassador for GWM and will represent the company on my upcoming travels and journey as a professional golfer.
On joining the GWM team I have ventured to the Middle East for the start of the MENA tour (Middle East and North Africa) end of season swing in Dubai. Since arriving I have had the pleasure of meeting and playing with Hamzah Shalchi the regional director of GWM, and an informal meeting with his team at their ‘Health, Wealth and Fitness spectacular’, of which provided a fantastic afternoon of family friendly events within the local Dubai community. I have also been involved with GWM’s PR company seven media, off which we have conducted a photoshoot and a small Q&A on location at the fantastic Trump International GC Dubai, be sure to check it out at guardianwealthmanagement.com.
My first event out in Dubai alongside GWM saw me finish in a tie for 38th. I feel although I did not play my best golf by any means, I stayed mentally strong and progressed my position after lying 65th after round 1, and making the cut on the number at +3 after round 2. I feel my game has been progressing over the summer, and I now move onto my next event at the Els Club in Sports City on the 18th-20th, followed by European Tour Qualifying school in France from the 26th-29th.
As a professional golfer, I have relished the experiences that travelling the world while playing a game I love brings, but also learning what is required of myself as a professional sportsperson on, and off the golf course.
I have enjoyed representing GWM inside and outside of the golfing ropes, and I look forward to promoting the GWM brand and myself in the best possible manner going forwards. I will be posting in conjunction with GWM regularly on my social media channels (follow me on Facebook and Instagram) as well as posting regular blogs on my website (eddyhollandgolf.com) to provide up to date information on my happenings and travels as a professional golfer.
I must say a special thank you to Lee Ward and Gavin Pluck, the managing director for GWM for making the new sponsorship possible.
