Victory at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage also marks Kupcho’s first Major Championship win
MENLO PARK, Calif., April 5, 2022 — Global consulting firm Protiviti is proud to announce that brand ambassador and professional golfer Jennifer Kupcho won the 2022 Chevron Championship in Rancho Mirage, California last Sunday. The win took place the same week that Kupcho had her previous biggest win at the inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur Championship in 2019.
Kupcho opened the Chevron tournament, which ran March 31 through April 3, with a 66 (-6) and posted an impressive third round 64 (-8) to put herself in position to close out play on Sunday. She solidified the win by finishing 14 strokes under, ahead of the field by two strokes.
Kupcho is 24 years old and playing in her fourth season on the LPGA. She turned professional in 2019 and is currently ranked 16th in the world.
“We are extremely proud of Jen’s outstanding performance at The Chevron Championship and congratulate her on the first LPGA tour and major championship victories of her career,” said Joseph Tarantino, president and CEO of Protiviti. “We are also excited that she made 25 birdies during the tournament for which Protiviti will donate 25,000 meals to fight world hunger as part of our ‘Birdies for Meals’ programme.”
The ‘Birdies for Meals’ programme is part of a larger Protiviti initiative to help alleviate hunger around the world, called ‘i on Hunger.’ Protiviti has pledged to donate 1,000 meals to the non-profit organisation U.S. Hunger each time Kupcho and fellow Protiviti golf ambassador Matt Fitzpatrick make a birdie in the Major Championships in 2022.
Commenting on her win, Kupcho said, “I’m so excited to share this victory with everyone at Protiviti their support throughout the past three years has been incredible. Knowing this week kicked off the ‘Birdies for Meals’ campaign with 25,000 meals is such a great feeling.”
Kupcho competes next in the LOTTE Championship in Hawaii, April 13-16. Follow her on Twitter: @JenniferKupcho.
