Every season, the Symetra Swift Award is presented to the No. 1 player in the Volvik Race for the Card to highlight her outstanding performance over the first half of the year. Jillian Hollis (Rocky River, Ohio) is the 2019 recipient with $92,699 earned across 10 starts.  

The honor is accompanied by $1,500 in bonus money for Hollis, while Symetra will also donate $1,000 to the charity of her choice.

“I didn’t even know about this award or that I could donate to charity,” said Hollis. “I’m going to donate my check to The First Tee of Cleveland because I love what they are doing to grow the game and help a lot of kids. Anytime you get a chance to donate is so awesome and to help out a little bit is super great. I want everyone to have the opportunity that I’ve had.” 

Hollis picked up her first professional win at the IOA Championship presented by Morongo Casino Resort & Spa in late March. She added a second victory earlier this month at The Forsyth Classic presented by Decatur Park District. The performances are part of six total top-10s in her second year on Tour.  

“This is the whole reason I play and enjoy it, to grow the game and be someone’s role model,” Hollis added. “I want to set a good example on the course. You’re not just playing golf, but showing respect for the game and treating people well is the message I really want to send.”
