LPGA Founders Cup Stipends in play


LPGA pros won’t get paid at the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup, but they’ll get help with expenses.

The tour will pay for player rooms, caddie rooms and players will get stipends to pay their caddies.

“I don’t want them to have to go into their own pockets to play,” LPGA commissioner Mike Whan said. “I’m going to take care of them best I can.”

In case you’re wondering, tour officials are still working out how much the “mock purse” will be.
