Mary Weinstein

DU junior Mary Weinstein fires record-setting 65 in final round to take medalist honors.

Behind the stellar play of Mary Weinstein, the University of Denver golf team captured the team and individual titles at the Summit league Championship, held at Creek Station Golf Course in Newton, Kan. The Pioneers fired a tournament-best 7-under 281 on the last day of play.

Head coach Lindsay Kuhle went with the lineup of Mary Weinstein, Sophie Newlove, Camille Enright, Alyson Bean and Trussy Li.

The win brought the league championship back home to Denver for the fifth time in the last six years since joining the league back in the summer of 2013.

The Crimson and Gold’s 7-under 281 also tied for the lowest round of the year.

Weinstein captured her first outright individual title and made it two straight years that DU has won individual medalist honors at the three-day event. The Highlands Ranch native was simply unstoppable on the course today, firing a 7-under 65, setting a new course and Summit League Championship record.

The junior’s incredible final round brought her 54-hole total to 217 (1-over), which tied the tournament record for low total with former Pioneer standout Jessica Carty back in 2016. Weinstein finished seven shots ahead of teammate Sophie Newlove, who won last year’s event.
