Tim Burke signs with Fairwhay Management

January 27, 2016

Officials at Fairwhay Management today announced that 2015 RE/MAX World Long Drive champion Tim Burke has signed a marketing and management agreement with the company. In October, Burke hit drives of more than 400 yards as part of his second World Long Drive Championship title in the last three years.

Burke was born in Marietta, Ga., and moved to Orlando, Fla., at a young age. He attended the University of Miami where he pitched for the Hurricanes' baseball team as part of the ACC Championship and College World Series in 2008.

After graduation, he focused his athletic ability on golf, specifically in Long Drive competitions. He competed in his first Long Drive competition in 2009 while interning at the Biltmore in Coral Gables.  He advanced to the next round, winning regionals.  He finished 20 th out of 150 players in the finals. Soon after, he joined the Long Drive Tour.

In 2010, Tim relocated to Washington, D.C., where he worked as an Internal Wholesaler for Steben & Company while still competing on the Long Drive Tour.  While he continues his career in finance, his main focus is in long drive competitions.

"I'm still amazed by the places that this sport has taken me and how many doors it has opened," Burke said. "I'm excited to continue moving forward in Long Drive Competitions and being an integral part of the growth of this sport. Fairwhay Management is a perfect fit for me because of their many connections in the golf and entertainment industries as well as their individualized and personal activation strategies."
