KNARESBOROUGH’S European Golf Tour ace John Parry has linked up with new sports management company MB Partners.

The 27-year-old turned pro in 2007 and has been playing on the prestigious European Tour for three years. In 2010, during his rookie season, he won the inaugural Vivendi Cup and has finished in the top five on numerous occasions.

Harrogate Golf Club player Parry had a successful amateur career, winning the Spanish and Danish amateur championships before going on to represent Great Britain and Ireland in the Walker Cup in 2007.

He said: “I am very happy with how my career has been advancing these past few years. Working with MB Partners will continue that momentum so I can focus on my career while MB Partners take care of everything else. When you look at the team I will have for support, I feel this will be of huge benefit for me to reach that next step.”

Duncan Maxim, head of golf at MB Partners, which is run by ex-Formula One driver Mark Blundell and Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis, said: “John has shown he’s a proven winner at all levels. We feel his game is about to go to another level.”

Parry’s next event is the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship which starts next Thursday when York’s Simon Dyson also returns to the European Tour.
