NEW YORK, September 9, 2019 – Isaiah Salinda, a member of both Stanford’s 2019 NCAA Championship winning golf team and the 2019 U.S. Walker Cup team, has signed with Lagardère Sports for management and marketing representation. Salinda will be represented by Jeff Koski, Vice President of Golf, and managed day-to-day by Tommy Riehle, Player Manager.

“As I begin my professional career, I am very excited and grateful to have the support of Lagardère Sports,” said Salinda. “I am confident the team’s experience and guidance will help me achieve my goals at the professional level.”
