Augusta Women’s champ wanted to make Chevron⁢ cut. Now she ​could win

Jennifer Kupcho had to settle for a tie for 15th at the Chevron Championship ​last year. She is hoping for a lot ‍more⁣ this week.

Kupcho, who ‍won the inaugural ​Augusta National Women’s ⁣Amateur in 2019, is one of the favorites this week at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage. ⁣She is⁢ coming off a victory at the Lotte Championship two weeks ago, and she has three other top-10 finishes this season.

“I’m really excited to be back at the ⁣Chevron‍ Championship,” said Kupcho ​before the tournament started. “I love this course and I⁤ think it sets up well for my game.”

Making the⁣ cut was foremost in Kupcho’s⁣ mind last year, when she was still a college player. A year later, she’s in the mix for the title: she’s tied for the ‍overnight lead with rounds of 67 and 69.
