4-time winner Kelsey Chugg will face BYU’s Adeline Anderson in championship match of 116th Utah Women’s State Amateur
To win “one for the thumb” at the 116th Utah Women’s State Amateur, Salt Lake City associate golf director Kelsey Chugg will have to get through one of the standouts on the BYU women’s golf team.
Thursday’s 18-hole championship match at Ogden Golf & Country Club will feature Chugg, an Ogden native and a four-time winner of the event, against BYU rising sophomore Adeline Anderson.
Chugg, who played collegiately at Weber State in 2012-13 and has toured Ogden G&CC more than 50 times, by her own estimation, last won the title in 2017, the same year she won the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur in Houston.
Anderson prepped at Buena High School in Ventura, California, and was a contributor for coach Carrie Roberts’ BYU team the past season as a freshman, appearing in 11 events and posting three top-25 finishes as the Cougars’ No. 5 player in most cases.
