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.

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.
