London - Ernie Els has changed management companies for the second time in little more than a year as he looks to capitalise on his increased exposure since winning the British Open this year.
The 43-year-old South African, whose ever-expanding portfolio also includes charity work and golf-course design and wine businesses, left Pros Inc on Tuesday to join an IMG stable that already includes Luke Donald, Sergio Garcia and Jason Dufner.
Els returned to the big time with his victory at Royal Lytham & St Anne's in July, capturing his fourth major title.
He says IMG "really is best equipped to help me achieve everything I want to do on and off the course."
Tiger Woods severed his longstanding association with IMG last year.
