WATERLOO, ON, Nov. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - The Manulife Financial LPGA Classic has bolstered its pool of prize money to US$1.5 million for the 2014 event, an increase of US$200,000 from the previous year.

In 2013, South Korean Hee Young Park out-lasted all other competitors and won $195,000 in prize money after a three-hole playoff. With the increase in prize money, the 2014 champion will be awarded US$225,000.

"The Manulife Financial LPGA Classic attracts many of the world's best female golfers," said Marianne Harrison, President and CEO, Manulife Canada. "Increasing the prize money speaks to the strength of the LPGA and the caliber of women's golf." From June 4 to 8, 144 LPGA players will compete for the title to win a portion of the US$1.5M purse at Grey Silo Golf Course in Waterloo, Ontario. Over its first two years, the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic has attracted more than 125,000 spectators, making it one of the most well-attended events on the LPGA Tour. TOA Awards
