Congratulations to Jin Young Ko on her back to back victory at The Founders LPGA event in New Jersey last month! Mountain Ridge Country Club was a beautiful course to host this event sponsored by Cognizant. The 13 in the pictures below represents the original 13 founding members of the LPGA! Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers! #r2it #lpga
Saturday, October 9th. Image what these ladies could have done on courses in this condition as compared to the 1960/70's greens and fairways.
I'd really like to watch this live, they play 'till dark tonite BUT thanks again to the turd programmers at golfchannel, theyd rather broadcast mens all day... unfair
I just got an email that the tournament has been canceled but I can't find any confirmation from the LPGA?
When will tickets be on sale for the LPGA Founders Cup 2020?
Came across this fond memory of my meeting Marilynn Smith in 2013. What a great lady and the absolute best promoter of women’s golf I have met. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten🏌️‍♀️
What a beautiful day at the LPGA Founder’s Cup Tounament !
Can't find the pairings on the Official site - am I missing something?
Another early day getting the practice facility going. Pro-AM day today!!
We'll see you at the Founder's Cup. Women's Golf and Travel will be at the Dominican Republic Tourism booth. Stop bye to take a chance on winning one of 6 trips to the Dominican Republic.
Can I have the list of players that will be in the tournament please?
is the Monday qualifier open to the public?

The Cognizant Founders Cup will be played October 6 - 10, 2021 at Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, NJ. The heart and soul of the LPGA association is embodied by its gifted and engaged players, who to this day still embrace the same primary responsibility established by the LPGA’s Founders: To leave the Tour better than how they found it.

Operating as usual

Growing the Game

Players participating in the Bank of Hope Founders Cup, a 72-hole, stroke-play event to be televised LIVE on the Golf Channel each day of the tournament. The tournament, with a field of 144 players, will help raise funds to grow the game at a grass-roots level much as Marilynn Smith, Shirley Spork, Louise Suggs, Marlene Bauer Hagge, Bettye Danoff and the 8 other LPGA Founders first set out to accomplish more than 60 years ago.

The event is held each March at Wildfire Golf Club at JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. The tournament will be officially sanctioned, thus providing official LPGA and World Golf Halls of Fame and Rolex Rankings points, as well as official statistics and impact to the LPGA Official Money List purposes.

The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) was established in 1950 by 13 brave women who set stereotypes aside to provide economic opportunities for women and girls. The LPGA owes its long and distinguished history to the hard work and dedication of these 13 women who not only formed the Association, but also organized tournaments, drafted by-laws, set up golf courses and did everything necessary to make professional golf a possibility for women.

LPGA-USGA Girls Golf is the LPGA's primary junior golf initiative which introduces girls from the ages of 7 to 17 to all areas of the game. The program also teaches the values inherent in the game itself – patience, perseverance, honesty and respect, providing young girls with the building blocks to become future role models both on and off the golf course. Many LPGA members, including 2010 LPGA-USGA Girls Golf National Ambassador Brittany Lincicome, Morgan Pressel and Vicky Hurst, were introduced to the game of golf through LPGA-USGA Girls Golf. The program is supported by all of the major golf organizations led by the USGA, but also including the EWGA (Executive Women’s Golf Association), PGA Tour, PGA of America and the Masters Tournament. In recent years, LPGA players have made significant donations to the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf program, including Inbee Park, who donated $50,000 in 2008, Na Yeon Choi, who donated $30,000 in 2010, and Karrie Webb who donated $25,000 in 2014 when she won the event.

LPGA-USGA Girls Golf has over 200 sites around the country and has served more than 60,000 participants since its inception in 1989. Girls Golf was originally established in Phoenix—where the inaugural LPGA RR Donnelley Founders Cup was held—by LPGA Teaching & Club Professional (T&CP) member Sandy LaBauve.
