LPGA Golf Prize Money Up for Grabs at 2017 Bank of Hope Founders Cup

The 2017 Bank of Hope Founders Cup golf tournament for women players on the LPGA Tour is taking place this week from March 16-19, 2017, at the Wildfire Golf Club at JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort and Spa located in Phoenix, Arizona. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs for the women LPGA golfers at the 2017 Bank of Hope Founders Cup.



The Founders Cup is the 5th tournament on the LPGA Tour in 2017. So far this year Brittany Lincicome, Ha Na Jang, Amy Yang and Inbee Park have won the first four tournaments. Brittany Lincicome is American but the last three winners on tour are all from South Korea. What nationality will win this week on the LPGA Tour? 

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2017 Bank of Hope Founders Cup is $1.5 million. The same amount of prize money that was up for grabs in this tournament last year. Sei Young Kim is the defending champion of the Bank of Hope Founders Cup.

As with most LPGA Tournaments the first place prize money in the 2017 Bank of Hope Founders Cup is set in stone at 15% of the total prize money. The rest of the prize money below the top spot can vary a little bit from what is shown based upon how many women make the cut. The more women who make the cut due to ties beyond 70 the less money each spot below the top spot will pay. The money below is based upon just 70 women making the cut.
