At the end of a weekly blog on his website, Ernie Els said he is leaving International Sports Management because he is living in South Florida and wants to consolidate his management to a new office.

Chandler’s clients include major champions Darren Clarke, Rory McIlroy and Charl Schwartzel, along with Lee Westwood, who was No. 1 in the world this year. Els joined him at London-based ISM in 2004.

“I feel like it’s the right time to make this move,” Els said. “After so many years based in the U.K. and traveling the world golf circuit since turning pro, it is nice to consolidate our activities in one place.”

Els thanked Chandler and the ISM team for their seven years together and said he was proud to be associated with “one of the most talented stables in world golf.”

He did not say who would handle his management.
