Kupcho Dominates at CWGA Match Play Championship

Jefferson Academy Standout Adds Another Big Trophy

Seventeen-year-old Jennifer Kupcho captured the 99th Colorado Women’s Golf Association Match Play Championship on Thursday with a dominating 6 and 5 performance over Tori Glenn, becoming one of the youngest titlists in the event’s history.

Kupcho’s impressive performance comes just one week after a win in the CWGA Junior Stroke Play, and mere weeks after she earned medalist honors at the 4A state high school championships (pictured left).

Kupcho, who’ll be entering her senior year at Jefferson Academy, has verbally committed to attend Wake Forest in Fall 2015.  

In the championship flight’s consolation match, Mackenzie Cohen defeated Taylor Dorans (1-up).

Kupcho’s match play victory at Lone Tree Golf Club also included wins over Nicole Hulbert (1 up), Allie Johnston (4 and 3) and Mary Weinstein (5 and 3).

Kupcho joins Becca Huffer as the two youngest winners of the CWGA Match Play. A three-time CWGA Junior Player of the Year, Huffer was 15 when she won the Match Play in 2005. The two are also the only players to capture both the CWGA Match Play and the CWGA Junior Stroke Play in the same year.

Next month Kupcho will compete in the Callaway Junior World Golf Championship in San Diego and at the U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship in Flagstaff, Ariz.
