Insurance Office of America Partners with Peggy Kirk Bell Girls Golf Tour

Partnership Links Generations of Women¹s Golf

(Greensboro, NC) — The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls Golf Tour (PKBGT) has announced a partnership with Insurance Office of America to introduce a new developmental series for junior girl golfers in Central Florida.

Insurance Office of America, which will be the title sponsor for three LPGA Symetra Tour events in 2018, will help link generations of junior golfers by partnering with the PKB Girls Golf Tour, an LPGA Foundation-approved tour dedicated to creating on-course opportunities for junior girls through girls-only golf tournaments.

“We are very excited to expand our sponsorships into girls Junior golf with the PKB Girls Golf Tour to help develop the next generation of American LPGA golfers,” said IOA Chairman John Ritenour.

The new series will be an addition to the 35 developmental tournaments the PKBGT runs across the east coast. These events offer innovative yardage-based divisions to girls aged 9-17. The PKBGT Series Progression allows players to progress towards playing collegiate golf by playing yardage/skill appropriate tournaments as they develop their game.

In addition, IOA will grant a sponsor’s exemption into the Symetra Tour’s 2018 IOA Golf Classic to one PKBGT member. That event will be contested September 28-30, 2018 at Alaqua Country Club in Longwood, FL. More details on how members will be able to qualify will be released this spring.
“We are extremely excited to have IOA on board with the PKBGT,” said PKBGT Tour Director Mike Parker. “As a lead supporter of the women’s game through their three title partnerships with LPGA Symetra Tour events in 2018 and the PKBGT’s new Developmental Series in Central Florida, IOA is paving the pathway for developmental women’s golf. This partnership will not only bring new opportunity for girls in Central Florida, but also will link the generations of American girl golfers.”

The PKBGT Central Florida One-Day Series will debut March 31 at Alaqua Country Club in Longwood, FL and end June 9 at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, FL. The point leaders of the five-day series will be awarded and ranked through the PKBGT Storie Apparel Order of Merit.
