The player incentives have been split into three categories and they all relate to player performances during the Club Car Series. The categories are: the leading ALPG rookie, the leading ALPG member who is not on either the LPGA, Ladies European Tour (LET), or Symetra tours in 2014 and leading ALPG member who has playing status on either the LPGA, Symetra or LET tours.

“Volvik is quickly becoming one of the most significant and trusted golf ball manufacturers in the world and its image which brings colour and vibrancy to the game aligns perfectly with the ALPG brand. The success that women professionals are having using the Volvik golf ball worldwide certainly makes the ALPG proud to endorse it. This agreement will see Volvik support not only our playing professionals, but also our teaching professionals which make up a large percentage of the ALPG membership. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
