Volvik Announces Signing of PGA TOUR Winner Tim Petrovic to Professional Staff
Volvik, the #1 Color Golf Ball on Tour, today announced the signing of PGA TOUR winner Tim Petrovic to their professional tour staff.
"I am always looking for the next breakthrough in performance in golf equipment and I believe I found it with Volvik," said Petrovic. "When I first started testing the Volvik golf balls, I couldn't believe how good they were around the greens. I was able to really spin it! Then I hit ten straight balls past the balls I was comparing them to. I said, 'What's the deal with these colored golf balls?' Now I know, they just make high performance products."
Petrovic has earned over $12 million in career earnings on the PGA TOUR and Web.com Tour including one PGA TOUR victory, 11 Top 3 finishes, 34 Top 10 finishes and 104 Top 24 finishes. Petrovic won the 2005 Zurich Classic of New Orleans on the PGA TOUR.
"Tim Petrovic joining the Volvik professional staff means that Volvik has made it to the big dance," said Volvik USA President Don Shin. "Showing the world that our golf balls are not only good enough to be played by a current PGA TOUR player and former winner on the PGA TOUR, but that we are confident they will help him improve his performance. This signing should add some perspective to our LPGA Tour success and recent signings of Champions Tour legends of the game. We are very serious about making golfers aware that we provide the best of the best of ultra-high performance golf balls."
In 2013, Petrovic made six of 12 cuts on the PGA TOUR, with one Top 10 finish.
