PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Lagardère Sports – the player-management firm that includes the likes of Phil Mickelson, Brandt Snedker and Jon Rahm – announced a series of personnel moves on Wednesday.

Senior vice president of golf operations Mac Barnhardt will leave the company on May 17 after nearly five years with the agency. Barnhardt joined Lagardère Sports when the firm acquired Crown Sports Management in 2013.

“The acquisition of Crown Sports was a milestone in the development of our premier golf business as we know it today,” said Steve Loy, the president of Lagardère’s golf division. “We thank Mac for his contributions to our agency and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Lagardère also announced contract extensions with Jeremy Elliott, Ben Harrison, Jimmy Johnston, Jeff Koski, and Lee Knox, as well as the addition of Rocco Novellino and Thomas Riehle.
