JTBC Founders Cup
The best of the LPGA Tour will descend upon Wildfire Golf Club at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa for the fifth edition of the JTBC Founders Cup, March 17 – 22, 2015.
The JTBC Founders Cup, which honors the LPGA’s strong foundation and bright future, was established four years ago to honor the 13 original Founders of the LPGA, and to help provide a future for the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program, which has received more than $2 million from tournament proceeds in the last four years.
Winners of the JTBC Founders Cup have been a who’s who of the LPGA’s elite with Karrie Webb, Yani Tseng and Stacy Lewis having captured the title.
In 2014, Karrie Webb, one of the most ardent supporters of honoring the history of the LPGA and its 13 Founders, became the first two-time winner of the Founders Cup. Following her victory, Webb capped off the special day by donating $50,000 of her $225,000 winner’s check - $25,000 to LPGA-USGA Girls Golf and $25,000 to “The Founders” film, which is a documentary that is being shot about the 13 Founders.
2015 promises to be another exciting year as fans can witness the best of today's players, while also catching a glimpse of the past as LPGA Founders Marilynn Smith, Shirley Spork and Louise Suggs and LPGA and World Golf Hall of Fame members, Betsy King, Patty Sheehan, Nancy Lopez and Pat Bradley have made special appearances at the JTBC Founders Cup over the years.
