Singh Hires Charley Moore As Business Advisor
Golfer VIJAY SINGH, who recently parted ways with longtime agency IMG, has hired golf and sports industry veteran CHARLEY MOORE as his business advisor. Moore has served in the past as agent to DAVID DUVAL, as well as other top golfers. Moore formerly worked as a golf agent at IMG for 11 years, representing many PGA Tour players, but left in ‘01. Moore is currently Operating Partner of Falconhead Capital, a N.Y.-based private equity firm. Singh will continue to be represented by DAVE LIGHTNER of FSM Capital LLC for financial matters. Moore said, “Vijay and Dave asked me if I could help them manage Vijay’s business affairs. I have known Vijay for 20 years and look forward to assisting him in his career.” Singh in a statement Friday said his split with IMG, where he was a client for more than 20 years, was amicable. “I have been represented by IMG for quite some time and am thankful for their years of service,” said Singh, ranked 13th in the world standings. “I have many good friends there and nothing is changing at that level. However, I feel this is the appropriate time to take my career management in a new direction. I spoke with TEDDY (FORSTMANN, IMG CEO & Chair) last week, who is a personal friend, and we had a productive conversation. He knows I wish him and everybody at IMG nothing but the best.”
