LPGA AND EXECUTIVE WOMEN'S GOLF ASSOCIATION TO UNITE IN STRATEGIC ALLIANCE TO GROW THE WOMEN'S GAME
ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 25, 2018– The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), one of the longest-running women's professional sports associations in the world, and the Executive Women's Golf Association (EWGA), the largest national women’s amateur golf organization, jointly announced today plans to form a strategic alliance to further promote the growth of women's golf.
Now Known as LPGA Amateur Golf Association
As you know, the EWGA moved under the LPGA umbrella earlier this year and was rebranded as LPGA Women Who Play, a program of the LPGA Foundation.
Not long after the merger was announced, it become clear that many members were supportive of the joining the LPGA family, but many were not in favor of the re-branded name. Some felt as though LPGA Women Who Play mistakenly implied that you were LPGA professionals, and some felt as though the word “Play” diminished the fact that you were serious, passionate women golfers.
As promised, we have listened and learned from your comments, suggestions and survey responses. We have spent the last few weeks applying what we learned and are notifying you that, as of today, LPGA Women Who Play will now be known as the LPGA Amateur Golf Association.

We continue to be excited about the future and look forward to getting back to work on your behalf. Onward and upward as the LPGA Amateur Golf Association!
Best of luck on the links this summer,
LPGA Amateur Golf Association
