It has been an exciting week for Kim Kaufman of Clark.
The Texas Tech senior golfer recently was named a first team Division I academic All-American. Kaufman has a 4.0 grade-point average as a political science major.
She also is turning pro. She will make her debut on the Symetra Tour starting Friday at the $100,000, 54-hole Decatur-Forsyth Classic in Decatur, Ill. The Symetra Tour, formerly known as the Futures Tour, is the official developmental circuit of the LPGA.
