Minjee Lee Wins Founders Cup


Minjee Lee won the Cognizant Founders Cup by 2-shots over Lexi Thompson, finishing at 19-under after a final round of two-under par 70. This is the seventh LPGA tour win for Lee, and her first of the 2022 season despite leading the tour in scoring for the season.

With a one-shot lead on the final hole, Lee stuck her approach to near tap-in range to seal the tournament.


The Founders Cup is all about celebrating the 13-founding members of the LPGA Tour.


For the LPGA Golf Pool, Tim Powell is the top point-earner for the week with 38 points.
