After four rounds at Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club, Jennifer Kupcho saw her name in solo second on the leaderboard at -10 overall. From battling migraines and the inability to see clearly earlier in the week to her final-round battle with Austin Ernst, Kupcho couldn’t be happier with how hard she fought.
“It's amazing. I didn't start very well after COVID-19 hit last year and everything, so it's nice to see that I can come off a break strong,” said Kupcho, who tied for 21st in her first start of 2021 at the Gainbridge LPGA. “I was hitting the ball really well last week and came into this week doing the same thing, so it's nice to see all the work that I put in over the offseason to really come out and start the year really well.”
Based on her current play and the diligence to improve her health, Kupcho can’t wait for the next event to give herself a chance and show that she can win.
“Going to work on getting stronger and continuing to focus on my game. Pretty much the same thing I did over the offseason,” Kupcho said. “I think it will be nice to have a little bit of a break [before heading to the West Coast] for a couple days, for sure.”
