2017 Championship University of Alabama All-American Kristen Gillman, of Austin, Texas, etched her name on the Robert Cox Trophy for a second time with a 7-and-6 triumph over incoming Alabama junior Jiwon Jeon, of the Republic of Korea, at The Golf Club of Tennessee. Gillman, a member of the victorious 2018 USA Curtis Cup Team, previously won the title in 2014 at the age of 16. To read more, click here. 
Quotable “I think this one was a lot harder to win because after the first one I won, it was my first time playing [in the U.S. Women’s Amateur], and so I was kind of new to it. But every time I come back now, I’ve always talked about how – like this week, I was the only champion in the field – it kind of brings a little bit more pressure along with it. But I think it also makes the victory a little sweeter, too.” -- Kristen Gillman
