Jennifer Kupcho, shown here during her victory in the Augusta National Women's Amateur, was medalist in Monday's sectional qualifier for the U.S. Women's Open.

GREENSBORO, N.C. (April 29, 2019) -- Jennifer Kupcho of Westminster, Colo., fired a 3-under-par 69 in the second round to finish at 3-under-par 141 overall and claim medalist honors in Monday’s U.S. Women's Open qualifier at Starmount Forest Country Club.

Kupcho is the recent winner of the Augusta National Women's Amateur and a standout at Wake Forest University. In addition to medalist honors, Kupcho claimed the low amateur award at the qualifier.

With her victory at Augusta National, Kupcho already had earned a spot in the U.S. Women’s Open, if she plays as an amateur. By qualifying on Monday, she can now opt to play as a professional, if she so chooses.

Also qualifying for the championship was Gina Kim of Chapel Hill, N.C. Kim outlasted Clemson Women's Golf Associate Head Coach Heather Young of Ft. Worth, Tex., in a one-hole playoff for the final qualifying spot.

Young is the first alternate. Emilia Migliaccio of Cary, N.C., is the second alternate.

Two qualifying spots and two alternate positions were available at this qualifying site.

The championship proper will be held at the Country Club of Charleston in Charleston, S.C. on May 31-June 2.

This qualifier was conducted by the Carolinas Golf Association on behalf of the United States Golf Association.
