They were not supposed to be athletes. They were not supposed to get paid to play. They were not supposed to call the shots. But in 1950, 13 amateur women golfers battled society, finances and sometimes even each other to stake their claim on becoming professional sportswomen by creating the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA). Long overdue, The Founders finally recognizes the unseen efforts, identifying these golfers as true icons of sport and equality. Not just a film for those who frequent the golf course, but for anyone who believes in the transformative power of defying the odds.
