Demi Runas Signs with LA Sports Agency

If you're going to force your way onto the LPGA with last-minute heroics, then you need to make the next step business-wise, too: finding an agent. And Demi Runas has done that. She announced on Facebook that she has "signed with Los Angeles based sports agency, Yee & Dubin Sports. So excited for the opportunity to get to work with such a great group of people! Happy to be part of the Y&D fam."

Yee & Dubin reps some big-name athletes, including other golfers - although they appear to just be breaking into the golf world. Among the agency's golf clients are Emily Tubert and Mo Martin.

They also rep some big-time NFL players. Have you heard of Tom Brady? You know, the New England Patriots quarterback? Yes? He's repped by Y&D. So are Patriots receivers Josh Boyce and Julian Edelman, along with Saints coach Sean Payton, among others.

So congrats to Demi!

As for our opening comment about her forcing her way onto the LPGA Tour: You might recall that Runas went into the final Symetra Tour tournament of 2014 needing a Top 5 finish to earn her LPGA card for 2015. Under that pressure, she finished second.
