Act Like a Founder:

"By your actions, you inspire and encourage your teammates to embody the Passion, Pride, and Perseverance necessary to enhance the LPGA."
As members of the LPGA team, we live by the “Act Like A Founder” vision and continue to remind ourselves of the philosophies of our Founders.  Throughout the year, LPGA teammates nominate other teammates to be recognized for acting like a founder.  We announce the nominees quarterly and the committee selects a winner at the end of the year.
Winners of this annual award receive an all-expense paid trip to the Founder’s Cup tournament where they will meet our remaining Founding Members – Shirley Spork and Marlene Bauer Hagge, enjoy VIP access to the tournament, and attend the Pioneer Dinner and Ceremony.
