Manulife Financial has finalized multi-year endorsement partnerships with 2013 Women's British Open Champion Stacy Lewis and Canada’s Jennifer Kirby.

Lewis and Kirby will represent Manulife globally during the 2014 LPGA Tour season wearing Manulife branded apparel while they compete.

The deals build on Manulife's ongoing involvement in golf as the title sponsor of the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic. The third annual Manulife Financial LPGA Classic is on the tour's schedule for June 4-8 at Grey Silo Golf Course in Waterloo.

Over its first two years, the tournament has attracted more than 125,000 spectators, making it one of the best-attended events on the LPGA Tour.

South Korea’s Hee Young Park won the event’s 2013 edition in a three-hole playoff and Brittany Lang of the U.S. won the inaugural tournament in 2012.

The 2014 Manulife Financial LPGA Classic will write bigger prize money cheques this year.

The total number will be $1.5 million US, a boost of $200,000. The 2014 champion’s bank account will grow by $225,000.
