(ORLANDO, Florida) – Volvik USA (volvik.com), a rapidly-growing, premium high-performance golf ball company, continues as title sponsor again this year of the LPGA Volvik Championship. Now in its third year, the tournament, which annually draws a strong field and produces some stellar play, will be competed May 24-27, 2018, at Travis Pointe Country Club, in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The defending champion of the LPGA Volvik Championship is Shanshan Feng, who set a new 72-hole Tournament scoring record last year at 20-under par, winning by two strokes ahead of Minjee Lee and Sung Hyun Park. The purse at this year’s event is $1,300,000.
“The Ann Arbor tournament has gotten stronger every year, and is quickly becoming a fantastic hometown stop on the LPGA Tour,” said LPGA Commissioner Michael Whan. “We’re excited to return and we very much appreciate the hospitality and support of Travis Pointe, the fans of Michigan and the title sponsorship support of Volvik.
“After a long, cold spring, perhaps the LPGA Volvik Championship will be a fantastic kick-off to the golfing season in the area!”
The 2018 LPGA Volvik Championship tournament week will begin with the inaugural University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital Congenital Heart Center LPGA Pro-Am on Monday, May 21, at Travis Pointe Country Club.
