Going Low at High Altitude

Weinstein fires a DU women's record 64 at Red Sky to finish third in Golfweek Conference Challenge, marking her best showing since joining Pioneers

by Gary Baines - 9/26/2018

Highlands Ranch resident Mary Weinstein apparently has taken a liking to the Fazio Course at Red Sky Golf Club in Wolcott.

In two appearances -- six rounds -- of playing in the Golfweek Conference Challenge at the Fazio layout, Weinstein has posted scores including a 68, a 66 and a 64.

That 8-under-par 64 -- her best round as a college player and a program record at the University of Denver -- came in Wednesday's final round of this year's Conference Challenge and led to her best individual finish since transferring from Regis to DU in the summer of 2017.

Weinstein, the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado's Girls Player of the Year in 2015 and '16, placed third Wednesday at Red Sky with a 10-under-par 206 total for three rounds. That left the junior (left in a DU photo) behind only two UCLA players -- champion Mariel Galdiano (203) and Patty Tavatanakit (205) -- in the Pioneers' season opener.

Weinstein, a U.S. Women's Amateur qualifier this year and the CGA Women's Match Play runner-up, closed out the tournament with an eagle on the 542-yard second hole -- her 18th -- after earlier making seven birdies and a bogey. The 64 was the low round of the tournament.

Weinstein led DU to a third-place finish in the 18-team event that the Pioneers won last year. They ended up at 9 over par, 41 shots behind champion UCLA.
