Note from the Tour

With the support of first-year title sponsor, Symetra, the Tour’s mission is to prepare the world’s best young women professional golfers for a successful career on the LPGA Tour. As the official “Road to the LPGA,” the Symetra Tour is no longer affiliated with any “Futures” reference. We wanted to make the distinction clear to you as members of the media and to communicate the move forward with our new umbrella sponsor.
