Kelly Whaley headed to Quinnipiac

Kelly Whaley of Farmington, the winner of the Connecticut Women's Amateur in August, has signed a national letter of intent to play women's golf at Quinnipiac University.
Whaley shot an even-par 72 to win the 46th Women's Amateur by 1 shot over Ellie Dutch at Timberlin Golf Club. Kelly is the youngest daughter of Suzy Whaley, the teaching pro at TPC River Highlands, home to the Travelers Championship. The elder Whaley qualified for the 2003 Travelers, then known as the Greater Hartford Open.
Whaley will join the team next fall.
“Jenn brings an extensive history of competing in some of the best tournaments in the country,” Quinnipiac coach John O’Connor said in a statement. “Jenn’s length off the tee and her understanding of what it takes to play golf in the Northeast make her a great addition to our team. Jenn comes from a family of great golfers and she will definitely leave her mark in the history books here at Quinnipiac.”
