Chinese teen sensation Zecheng Dou signs with IMG

For worldwide management and marketing representation

Nineteen-year-old Zecheng, a graduate of the CGA-HSBC Junior Programme, which is run in conjunction with IMG, enjoyed a record-breaking season on the China PGA Tour. And now he plans to step it up.

Zecheng’s breakthrough win came at the season-opening Henan Open after a two-hole playoff with countryman Xinjun Zhang. He went on to win three more titles: United Investment Real Estate Wuhan Open, Sunning Estate Nanjing Zhongshan Open, and the Yulongwan Yunnan Open.

Zecheng was awarded player of the year honours and finished first on the China PGA Tour Order of Merit. He made all 13 cuts and set a single season–earning record (¥1,144,350). Additionally, he has now won playing rights on the Web.com Tour for the 2017 season.

Finishing a credible 40th in the 2016 WGC-HSBC Champions this year, Zecheng said, “I am delighted to be joining IMG. I am really excited to have qualified for the Web.com Tour and am looking forward to playing in America. I chose IMG to manage me because they have offices all over the world and a really experienced client team who will help me make the transition to playing in America.”
