Up on the Roof at RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup
PAIGE MACKENZIE, AMANDA BLUMENHERST AND WENDY WARD hit shots from the roof of the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa during the February media day for the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup.
Who do you think hit the 200-yard shot closest to the hole? Did any of the three make a birdie?
The RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup, the first U.S. event of the 2013 LPGA season, starts on Thursday. World No. 1 Yani Tseng defends her title in the $1.5 million event played on the par-72 Wildfire Golf Club in Phoenix, Arizona. Also in the 144-player field are the winners of the season's first three LPGA events: Stacy Lewis, Jiyai Shin and Inbee Park.
The tournament celebrates the 13 founders of the LPGA Tour. One third of the purse ($500,000) will be donated to the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program.
