Cristie Kerr offers her reaction to Founders Cup changes:
"I applaud the steps that were taken by the commissioner, the sponsors and the players to work toward making a good concept into an event that is more beneficial for all parties. I think it's important for everyone concerned to know that we as players supported the idea of a charity event which honored our Founders, and personally think the fact that Mike was able to work with us to make it better shows a strength in our tour and says a lot about his leadership.
I'm not sure we would have been able to have constructive dialogue behind the scenes in former times.
The delay in my decision to play in the RR Donnelley is not based on any objections I have with the event now that these changes were made, more so my personal schedule. I intend to make a decision following the season-opening events in Asia."
