CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Coastal Carolina junior Brittany Henderson has been selected the Choice Hotels Big South Women's Golfer of the Week for events played Feb. 9-15, it was announced Friday by the Conference office.
The honor is first of the Smiths Falls, Ontario native's career.
Henderson was Coastal's top finisher at the spring-opening UCF Challenge (par 72, 6,374 yards) with a career-best 3-over par 219 (71-74-74). She was the only Chanticleer to finish a round under par as she fired a 71 on the opening day of the tournament. Henderson's 14th-place finish was her best of the 2011-12 season, and she carded 10 birdies during the 54-hole event -- including a third round birdie of the par 4, 400-yard No. 5 hole.
Henderson and the Chanticleers return to the links on Monday at the Central District Invitational in Parrish, Fla.
