Scary-Good Mary

University of Denver's Mary Weinstein.

ALTHOUGH SHE’S ONLY a year younger, Mary Weinstein appears to be the heiress apparent to Jennifer Kupcho in Colorado women’s golf. The 21-year-old University of Denver senior from Highlands Ranch, who lost to Kupcho by 21 strokes in the 2015 Women’s Stroke Play, is now similarly dominating tournaments. She swept both of the Colorado Golf Association’s women’s majors, defeating Erin Sargent of Longmont in the CGA Women’s Stroke Play by six strokes and thrashing her 11-and-10 in the Women’s Match Play. The individual winner of this year’s Summit League Championship, Weinstein also won the inaugural Denver Women’s City Amateur Championship by three shots over Erin Houtsma. The question now is whether the two-time Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar will continue to play as an amateur or give professional golf a go.
