«I am ecstatic we have the opportunity to work with Dylan. After getting to know him at Lake Shore, I was impressed with his humility, demeanor, and intellectual curiosity,» Kovitz said. «Since then, we have kept in touch and now have the opportunity to support him in his new endeavors on tour. We look forward to extending our relationship with Dylan and wish him luck in the 2022 PGA Tour season.»
Wu has posted 18 career top-25 finishes on the Korn Ferry Tour, including six top-10s last year. He won at the Price Cutter Charity Championship in 2020 and finished tied for 31st in this year’s U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. The Oregon native comes from a family of Division I golfers, including two brothers and a sister who play.
In addition to adorning the Kovitz logo on Wu’s golf polos, this partnership will facilitate key client engagements prior to tournaments, provide unique firm experiences at PGA Tour events, and much more.
