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 15 – 20, 2016.
The JTBC Founders Cup, which honors the LPGA’s strong foundation and bright future, was established in 2011 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 .
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 2015 the JTBC Founders Cup winner was 19-year-old rookie Hyo Joo Kim, shooting a 5-under 67 final round on Sunday to defeat Stacy Lewis by three strokes and capture her second LPGA Tour win.
2016 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.
