Golfer Jennifer Kupcho continues to prove her status as one of Colorado’s best to ever play the sport. She dominated as a high school player at Jefferson Academy in Broomfield, then won the NCAA Championship and the Augusta National Women’s Amateur as a college golfer at Wake Forest.
She’s a member of our Sportswomen of Colorado Hall of Fame. And, now she’s the back-to-back winner of our Professional Athlete of the Year Award.
In 2020, Jennifer won her first professional tournament right here at home—the CoBank Colorado Women’s Open at Green Valley Ranch. She broke 70 three straight days to finish 16 under par. Not only did she score her first pro win, she pocketed $50,000!
We’ve had our eye on Jennifer Kupcho a long time. She’s scored huge success on every level. Now, her fellow LPGA competitors will be sure to keep their eye on her, too.
