The 2024 Cognizant Founders Cup field is set with the passing of the typical Friday entry deadline. The LPGA Tour field this week is set for this major championship event, played at Upper Montclair Country Club in Clifton, New Jersey, from May 9-12, 2024.

The Cognizant Founders Cup field is headlined by the likes of Nelly Korda, Jin Young Ko, Brooke Henderson, Minjee Lee and more.

This is set to be a 144-player field is played out over four days, with this event marking the 10th event of the season. The LPGA Tour returns to Los Angeles for the second time this season, with a fan and player favorite host course.

The tournament is being played in its originally intended slot, bringing the 2024 LPGA Tour schedule back to the East Coast of the United States for two events in a row in New Jersey.

We do not yet have two Monday qualifiers for this event in the field, with that 18-hole tournament still to be played.

The week-of alternate list is set for the week, with Alexandra Fosterling and Ana Pelaez Trivino being the first two names on the alternate list.

The field will be playing for a $3 million purse, with 34 of the top 50 in the Rolex Women's World Golf Ranking among the top contenders.
