Epson America (Los Alamitos, CA) announced a five-year sponsorship deal with the Ladies Professional Golf Association that calls for the association”s qualifying tour to be renamed the Epson Tour.
Extending through the 2026 calendar year, the Epson Tour will award LPGA Tour membership to the top 10 players on the “Race for the Card” money list at the end of each season. Epson America’s parent company, Seiko Epson Corporation, also becomes an official partner of the LPGA Tour and the Epson Tour.
