Ernie Els splits from Chubby Chandler
September 22, 2011

Ernie Els has split with former manager Chubby Chandler, moving management support for his career to his new office in Florida, Els said in a posting on his website.

Els, a three-time major champion, had worked with Chandler's British-based International Sports Management since 2004.

The 41-year-old African cited his schedule keeping him in America more and more and his new office as reasons.

"I just feel like it's the right time to make this move," Els said. "After so many years based in the UK and travelling the world golf circuit since turning pro, it is nice now to consolidate our activities in one place."

The move comes as Chandler revels in the joy of having players he managed win three major titles this year and four of the past six.

Chandler's champions include South Africans Louis Oosthuizen from last year's British Open, South African Charl Schwartzel from this year's Masters, Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy at this year's US Open and Northern Ireland's Darren Clarke from this year's British Open.

"I wish Chubby and all the guys great continued success," Els said.
