Rose Zhang Wins Founders Cup


[Editors Note: Sorry the recap is a week late, I just realized this morning that I had completely forgotten to to the write-up for Founders Cup]

Rose Zhang won the Cognizant Founders Cup by two-shots over Madelene Sagstrom, in what was essentially a two-person tournament (Gabriela Ruffels finished in third place, a full 13 strokes behind Sagstrom). Zhang finished the tournament at 24-under par, after a final round 6-under 66, to capture her second career title on the LPGA Tour.

In the LPGA Golf Pool, Ron Allen had the best week with 41 points.
