Symetra extends LPGA developmental tour deal

Financial services group Symetra has renewed its title sponsorship of the Ladies Professional Golf Association’s developmental tour until the end of the 2017 season.

The Golf News Net website said the two parties announced the deal at the end of the weather-delayed Symetra Tour Championship on Monday.

Symetra secured the naming rights to the tour for an initial three year period when it took over from medical services specialists Duramed, and that deal was due to expire in 2014.

The Symetra Tour awards 10 LPGA Tour cards to the top 10 finishers on its money list.
