Symetra renews its tour sponsorship

Daytona Beach, FL ( - Symetra, the title sponsor for the LPGA's developmental tour, announced on Tuesday that it has extended its title sponsorship agreement for three more years, through the 2017 season.

Symetra took over as the tour's title sponsor in 2011. The company will also continue as the title sponsor of two tour events, the Symetra Classic and the Symetra Tour Championship.

Finally, Symetra will continue to back three awards -- Symetra Swift Award, the Symetra Rising Star Award and the Symetra Tour Player of the Year.

"We're pleased to extend our role as the Symetra Tour's title sponsor, and we're delighted to be affiliated with the rising golf stars of women's golf," said Jim Pirak, Symetra senior vice president of Marketing. "Over the last two years, we've watched our brand take flight along with the careers of many talented young golfers -- and the response from our business partners and employees alike has been extraordinarily positive."
