July 7, 2017
DENVER – The University of Denver women’s golf head coach Lindsay Kuhle announced the addition of Regis transfer Mary Weinstein on Friday. Weinstein will join the team in the fall as a sophomore.
Weinstein comes to the Pioneers after one season at Regis University. The Highlands Ranch native rewrote the record book in her lone season as a Ranger, earning WGCA All-America honorable-mention honors. She was also named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) Player and Freshman of the Year by the conference.
“We are so excited to add Mary to our program next fall,” Kuhle said. “She was one of the best high school golfers to come out of Colorado after winning state and the junior stroke play championship. She was a fantastic junior golfer and had high finishes at prominent national events.
“She's proved last year that she can compete with the best in college golf at the Division II level, earning a college win, advancing to the national championship and earning All-America honors. We know that Mary will make an immediate impact on our program because she can go low and shoot under par and is has a very consistent game and swing.”
The 5-foot-2 golfer packs a powerful swing and soft touch around the green, posting the lowest scoring average in school history at Regis last year. Weinstein also posted a low round of 69 during her freshman campaign.
“Mary is an exceptional student as well and brings a competitive drive and a phenomenal work ethic to our program,” Kuhle added. “Our players are student athletes that achieve high level of success in both arenas. Mary is just that and will fit in immediately. I am excited to see what she can achieve in her three years with us at DU to help take us to the national championship and becoming a prominent top-20 golf program.”
Kuhle also announced that she will be taking maternity leave during the fall portion of the 2017-18 season and will not coach during that time. Second-year assistant Kolton Lapa will act as the interim head coach during Kuhle’s leave.
Joining Lapa as assistant coach for the fall season is Melissa Martin. She hails from Grand Junction and had a successful high-school career in Colorado. Martin played collegiately at Colorado State for two years before transferring to Denver for her final three years.
Martin then played for three years after, attending LPGA Qualifying School. She now is a Level 1 PGA Apprentice who also works at Highlands Ranch Golf Club, and coached at Regis Jesuit High School in the spring season this past year.
