Rory McIlroy and Chubby Chandler

Rory McIlroy-Chubby Chandler

Much of the 2011 season was spent talking about a potential 'Chubby Slam', but it ended with golf's super agent losing a major chunk of his high-powered list of clients. Reigning U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy, the heir apparent to Tiger Woods as the game's biggest star, dealt Chandler's International Sports Management a huge blow by breaking away. The company, specifically Chubby, had represented the phenom since he turned pro four years prior. Weeks before, Chandler also lost three-time major winner Ernie Els as a client.
