Meet Anna –
Anna Jensen, a redshirt junior at the University of Northern Iowa has been competing in IGA championships since her junior days. 2014 marked the beginning of her IGA championship experience when she teed it up in her first Iowa Junior Girls’ Amateur at the age of 12. Competing in IGA events for over 10 years now, Jensen captured her first title in 2023, taking home the IGA Women’s Match Play Championship over fellow fundraising participant, Paige Hoffman. As a Panther, Jensen’s career has been highlighted by frequent top-ten finishes including two top-fives this past fall. Outside of the golf course, Jensen was also the recipient of an Ann Griffel Scholarship in 2020.
“I am truly honored to represent Iowa women’s golf in this fundraiser for the 100th Women’s Amateur. I am a huge advocate for women’s sports, especially women’s golf because I know first-hand the blessings playing competitive golf has given me. I grew up playing IGA events specifically in the Women’s Am. Through it, I have learned so many valuable lessons and I have found so many lifelong friendships with my competitors. I think it is important to continue to grow the field and allow many more girls and women to be able to share in this amazing experience”
