LPGA Cognizant Founders Cup

More than 70 years ago, thirteen women came together around a shared vision to elevate and celebrate female golfers. Today, the LPGA Founders Cup stands as one of the sport’s most celebrated events.

With our LPGA partnership, we’re helping carry this tradition forward for future generations of female athletes. We’re also investing in people and programs that create new opportunities for women in sports, much in the same way we invest in the future of women in technology—and we’re proud to partner with an organization that shares those values.

About the LPGA Cognizant Founders Cup

Increasing access to the sport for young women and girls

The primary beneficiary of the Cognizant Founders Cup is the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program.  

Over the past 10 years, the Cognizant Founders Cup has raised nearly $4 million for the organization. Those donations have enabled Girls Golf to add 34 new sites and support growing locations that doubled in size.

Paying homage to a rich history

The LPGA Cognizant Founders Cup has become one of the most well attended and celebrated events on the Tour calendar. 

The event pays homage to the Tour’s rich history and the 13 women—known as the Founders—who created the LPGA Tour over 70 years ago.

Intuition is a game changer

Pro golfers take in massive amounts of data—distance, wind, terrain—before every shot. The ability to process that information and act instantly is what separates good golfers from great ones. The same can be said for your business. To remain relevant, you need to see what others can’t. And act before they can. That’s the power of intuition—and we can engineer it.
