2012 Female Athlete of the Year Award Recipient
While she may not be related to Tiger, Jen Woods definitely shares a similar trait in her ability to play golf. During her five year collegiate golfing career, Jen won seven out of 20 tournaments, captured four consecutive provincial team titles, two national silver team medals and three CCAA tournament all-star awards. What makes these statistics even more impressive is that during her freshman season, there was no women’s division and she was playing as the only female golfer, competing directly against the men.
In 2012, Jen was able to finish her university golfing career by leading her team to their first ever CCAA Championship win. As such, Jen was nominated for the Sport B.C. College Athlete of the Year award.
Jen’s contribution towards the sport of women’s golf at UBC Okanagan has been paramount. She also is helping to encourage the love of golf among younger athletes by volunteering at her former high school, Rutland Senior Secondary.
Jen is ranked second in the province and fourth nationally and hopes to continue golfing in amateur competitions after graduation.
