Robertson Baxter Sponsor Local Golfer Jamie Bower

A Yorkshire firm of independent financial advisers has announced its sponsorship of one of England’s most promising young golfers, Jamie Bower.

23-year-old Jamie plays out of Meltham Golf Club in Huddersfield where he was born and has played all his life. He has represented Yorkshire since he was 14 and England since he was 18.

In 2016 he won the English Men’s Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship (The Brabazon Trophy) and represented England on numerous occasions including the Eisenhower Trophy in Mexico.

Jamie recently turned professional, signing to leading golf talent agency FireStart Sports Management – who also manage Tyrrell Hatton and Jamie Donaldson – in a bid to gain full Challenge Tour playing rights for the 2018 season so he can gain a coveted spot on the European Tour.

Robertson Baxter will be Jamie’s right arm logo sponsor. For the firm, the partnership is about supporting one of the region brightest sporting talents, as Joint Managing Director, Greg Robertson, explains:

“Jamie is an incredibly talented young man and we’re delighted to be supporting him. Not only is he a great golfer but he’s a very focussed, driven and genuine individual.

“He’s just turned professional and signed with FireStart Sports Management, so we felt the time was right to support him and help where we can to take his career to the next level.”

“I’m incredibly grateful for the support I’ve received from Robertson Baxter,” added Jamie.

“Their support will make a big difference to me as I’m doing a lot of travelling this year in the hope of eventually getting on the European Tour.”
