Volvik Announces Signing of LPGA Tour Winner Jennifer Johnson
Volvik Announces Signing of Jennifer Johnson to Professional Staff
Volvik, the #1 Color Golf Ball on Tour, recently signed LPGA Tour winner Jennifer Johnson to a two-year endorsement contract.
Johnson plays the Volvik S3 golf ball and has already played Volvik in three LPGA Tour events this year, leading her to two Top 40 finishes and a total score of 11 under par in 10 rounds played.
“I love this golf ball,” said Johnson. “It’s very responsive, both off the tee and around the greens. It wants to stay straight off the tee due to the low driver spin, which has helped me improve my driving accuracy. I feel like I have everything I need to compete at the highest level every week.”
Johnson turned professional in 2010 and has since earned $1,211,441 in competition. She won her first and only LPGA Tour event at the 2013 Mobile Bay LPGA Classic. She has earned 10 career LPGA Tour Top 10 finishes.
Johnson played one year of college golf at Arizona State University, earning the status of All-American as a freshman. She played on several winning U.S. amateur teams: the Junior Ryder Cup in 2008, the Junior Solheim Cup in 2009 and the Curtis Cup in 2010.
"We are very excited to have Jennifer Johnson representing Volvik on the LPGA Tour," said Don Shin, President of Volvik USA. "Jennifer did extensive testing with our golf ball and truly believes in the performance of Volvik. We think she will have great results as a member of Team Volvik and look forward to seeing her in action with her Volvik hat and staff bag!”
Johnson joins a team of 10 other players already playing Volvik golf balls on the 2016 LPGA Tour, making Volvik one of the most played golf ball brands on the tour.
Their staff players include Hall of Famer and 25-time LPGA Tour winner Se Ri Pak, current #13 on the money list Pornanong Phatlum, current #23 on the money list Chella Choi (a winner with Volvik on the LPGA Tour), current #42 on the money list Ilhee Lee (a winner with Volvik on the LPGA Tour), current #60 on the money list Mi Hyang Lee (a winner with Volvik on the LPGA Tour and the Symetra Tour), LPGA Tour winner Meena Lee, Victoria Elizabeth (a winner with Volvik on the Symetra Tour), Christine Song (a winner with Volvik on the Symetra Tour), Casey Grice, an LPGA Tour rookie who finished in the Top 10 in the 2015 Volvik Race for the Card and Stephanie Kono, who earned LPGA Tour status through Qualifying-School.
Volvik golf balls are also in play by Champions Tour players Craig Stadler and John Huston, PGA TOUR and Web.com Tour player Tim Petrovic and Web.com Tour player Travis Bertoni.
Of the 15 players on Team Volvik’s LPGA Tour and PGA TOUR professional staff, nine are American, five are from South Korea and one is from Thailand.
