Yani Tseng has been on a slide since last season, having difficulty coping with the pressure and loneliness of being the best player in women’s golf.
As she looks to dig out of that skid, however, she has signed with IMG to be her new management and marketing representation in North America and Europe. Her family corporation will continue to oversee her marketing in Asia.
“IMG looks forward to building on the personal brand of this rare talent and great ambassador for the game, but also helping her in her desire to grow women’s golf around the world,” said Guy Kinnings, senior vice president and global head of IMG Golf, in a release.
The 24-year-old Taiwan native is the youngest player in golf history to win five major championships, but Tseng has not won on the LPGA Tour since the Kia Classic in March 2012. Tseng’s two best finishes on the LPGA Tour this season came in her first two events: a runner-up effort at the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open and a T-3 finish at the Honda LPGA Thailand.
