Volvik Signs PGA Tour Champion Stephen Ames
ORLANDO, Florida (February 22, 2018) - Volvik is proud to announce the signing of PGA Tour winner Stephen Ames to a multi-year agreement. Stephen finishedtied for 15th place in his first event playing the Volvik Tour S3 golf ball at the Chubb Classic in Naples, FL last week. He also carried the Volvik staff bag, and wore a Volvik Tour Cap and glove during the tournament.
Ames is a four-time winner on the PGA Tour, highlighted by a dominating victory at the 2006 Players Championship where he won by a record-tying six stroke margin. A native of Trinidad and Tobago, he currently resides in Vancouver, Canada. Playing on the PGA Champions Tour since 2014, Ames has had huge success with seventeen top ten finishes.

Other highlights of Stephen's career include four PGA Tour wins including the Cialis Western Open (2004), The Players Championship (2006), The Children's Miracle Network Classic (2007, 2009), three Skins Game Victories (2005, 2006, 2007), and he is also a member of the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame.
"I've been playing the Volvik Tour S3 for a couple months now, and I love the feel and reaction I get from the ball," Stephen said. "I'm getting more distance off the tee, and with irons I am able to really control it in windy conditions. Around the greens, it has good spin and a very soft feel for top tour level performance."
"We are very proud to expand our tour presence with a great champion like Stephen Ames. His confidence in our Tour S3 golf ball will surely contribute to his continued success on tour, and we look forward to seeing him achieve more wins this year," said Don Shin, president of Volvik USA.
