Hansen Heading to Lubbock Regional
Conway - Coastal Carolina University’s Malene Krolboll Hansen has received an invitation to play in the 2017 Women’s Golf NCAA Golf Regional in Lubbock, Texas.
The junior will be one of six individuals to compete in the regional along with 18 teams.
Hansen finished fourth at last week’s Sun Belt Conference Tournament with an even par 216. Her 72.40 stroke average this season is the best in CCU women’s golf single-season history. She was the individual champion at the Golfweek Conference Challenge.
She has four top-five finishes this season which led her to being named First Team All-Sun Belt Conference. She was also named to the Sun Belt Conference All-Tournament Team after her fourth place finish at the SBC Tournament.
The Lubbock Regional will be played May 8-10 at the Rawls Course in Lubbock. It is the home course of Texas Tech University, which is playing host to the regional.
The Rawls Course will play as a par 72 and its 6,593 yards are stretched across 270 acres. The course was recently named the No. 4 campus course in the country by Golfweek Magazine in September 2016.
