CHUBBY Chandler’s ISM stable has  launched a pioneering sponsorship scheme to help prestigious businesses support his Class of 2016 on the road to success. The programme sees partners invest in up-and-coming quintet Garrick Porteous, Thriston Lawrence, Haydn McCullen, Jack McDonald and Billy Spooner, as well as accessing unrivalled networking opportunities and a golf day.

DWB Wealth Consultancy (Wealth Management), Enterprise (Car Rental), GoPro (Action Cameras), Irish Biltong Co (Food), London Sport Exchange (Finance & Investments), MyProtein (Nutrition), Pond Mobile (Mobile Operator), Savills (Estate Agent), The Entertainer (Discount Publisher), Adaris (FX) and TW Steel (Luxury) will back the youngsters as they embark on seasons that will prove crucial to their golfing futures.

Garrick will focus on the Challenge Tour, while Thriston, Haydn, Jack and Billy will be looking to underline their growing reputations on the EuroPro Tour, each wearing the Class of 2016 logo as they set off on the path to stardom.

Chandler said: “We believe this is a great way to connect new partners with our best young talent.

“They will be involved in every step and share the highs and lows of what promises to be a memorable year for these young lads, who have bags of potential.

“The boys are really buying into the ethos of the whole thing and who knows? In years to come these companies may be able to boast about having been involved with one of the world’s leading players at the very start.”

Garrick is a former British Amateur champion, while South African Thriston, 19, won last year’s Ras Al Khaimah Classic on the way to finishing at the top of the MENA Tour’s Order of Merit.

Haydn, also 19, won the Championship on last year’s EuroPro Tour, while Jack, 23, who helped Great Britain and Ireland win the Walker Cup last year, and former England international Billy, 18, have recently turned professional.
