BEDMINSTER, N.J. – Wake Forest rising junior Jennifer Kupcho had a strong performance at the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open, shooting even par over four rounds at Trump National Golf Club to finish T-21st at the major championship. Kupcho was the second lowest amateur and tied for the fourth best finish by an American player.

Kupcho shot 74-72-71-71 to shoot even par for the tournament. She was one of five amateurs to make the cut and finished ahead of three of the top 10 players in the world. Her 21st place finish is the best by an active Demon Deacon at the event.

It was the second consecutive year that Kupcho has competed at the tournament, having qualified by winning a sectional tournament in Colorado in May.

Kupcho’s busy summer continues later this month as she represents the USGA at the 2017 Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship, July 25-28 at Cutten Fields in Guelph, Ontario. Next month Kupcho will compete at the 2017 U.S. Women’s Amateur, held August 7-13 at the San Diego Country Club in Chula Vista, Calif.

Kupcho, a consensus 2017 first-team All-American, set a school record last season with a 70.61 scoring average. She had eight top-five victories, including three victories.
