KCGA/KGA Women's Players of the Year Announced


As the 2019 season comes to an end, the Kansas City Golf Association and Kansas Golf Association would like to recognize the top talent in our women’s sector of competition. These three players exceled in tournaments all year long and proved themselves to be consistently atop the leaderboard. Congratulations to the following women for their excellent seasons!

Julia Misemer (pictured above), now a sophomore at Blue Valley West, is our 2019 KCGA/KGA Girls Player of the Year after another consistent year. Coming off a recent KSHSAA 6A Girls State Championship win, Misemer ran away with this year’s award. Highlights of Misemer’s 2019 campaign consist of a first-place finish at the KC Junior Championship at Brookridge Golf & Fitness, qualifying for the National PGA Championship, and a runner-up finish at the KC Women’s Match Play Championship at Swope Memorial.

Misemer also qualified for the US Girls Junior Championship and qualified for match play. At the Kansas Women’s Amateur at Prairie Dunes, Misemer finished tied for eighth. Misemer at only 15, has long been a force in the junior golf community of Kansas and we look forward to her next few years of competition.

Rachel Stous (pictured above), a freshman at Metropolitan Community College, claimed her first KCGA/KGA Women’s Player of the Year award. In a close battle with Kansas University golfer Sera Tadokoro, Stous outperformed her competition by 337 points. Stous’s season was highlighted by win in the KC Women’s Match Play Championship at Swope over Girls Player of the Year recipient, Julia Misemer, and her runner-up finish at the Kansas Women’s Amateur at Prairie Dunes.

Stous was also a member of the Kansas Women’s Fore State team and finished tied for sixth at the Prairie Invitational at The National Golf Course of Kansas City.

Susan DeVoe of Overland Park (pictured above), took the KCGA/KGA Senior Women’s Player of the Year after finishing in the top five in at least five events in 2019. Devoe’s competitive season shined with two wins in Women’s Four-Ball events, a top-five finish at the Tee-Fore-Two Championship at Rolling Hills Country Club, and a runner-up finish in the Kansas Women’s Senior Championship.
