Volvik Staff Players Earn Top 10, 3 Top 25's at Manulife LPGA Event

LPGA Tour professionals using Volvik golf balls earned a Top 10 and three Top 25 finishes using three different colors at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic Sunday. Chella Choi (T8th - Orange), Meena Lee (T15th - Yellow) and Thidapa Suwannapura (T24th - Pink) all continued solid 2014 LPGA campaigns in Canada this week.

Five out of seven players using Volvik golf balls at the event made the cut.

Volvik players have already experienced 5 Top 5's, 9 Top 10's  and 37 Top 25's after 14 events on the 2014 LPGA Tour. Five Volvik staff players currently rank in the Top 50 in the Race to the CME Globe standings, the new season-long points competition that will pay the player who has accumulated the most points with a $1 million unofficial money payout.

For the #11 ranked Choi, it was her 4th Top 10 of the season. It is the 31st Top 10 by a player using Volvik golf balls in the last two LPGA seasons.

For the #17 ranked Lee, it was her 4th Top 20 finish of the 2014 season. She finished 2nd at the North Texas Shootout earlier in the year.

Suwannapura earned her 5th Top 25 finish of the year and ranks 42nd in the CME Race for the Globe.

"Every week on tour there are several Volvik players near the top of the leader board," said Volvik USA President Don Shin. "What's especially unique for Volvik is that we are experiencing this success with different color golf balls. It's huge for us exposure wise to have three different players using three different colors showing up on TV, it really engages the viewer and leads them to want to check out this company that is doing things differently from the rest."

The next LPGA Tour event is U.S. Women's Open conducted by the USGA starting June 19. The event is being held at Pinehurst #2, the same course hosting the men's U.S. Open this week. Five Volvik players are scheduled to play in the U.S. Open - Choi, Meena Lee, Pornanong Phatlum, Ilhee Lee and Birdie Kim.
