Hansen Named SBC Women's Golfer of the Week
Conway - Coastal Carolina's Malene Krolboll Hansen has been named the Sun Belt Women's Golfer of the Week, the league's office announced Thursday.
Hansen finished second overall at the Pinehurst Challenge in leading the Chanticleers to a second place finish.
She opened the event with a 68-67 on the first day of action tying the school record of 135, after 36 holes of play. She completed the Challenge with a 74 on the event's final 18 holes giving her a seven-under 209 finish.
The 209 is tied for the third-best finish in school history and is only two shots off her own school-record nine-under 207 she set last season in winning the Golfweek Conference Championship.
The two rounds she shot in the 60's gives her a total of 11 rounds she has shot in the 60's in her career and gives her 42 rounds of par or better. She continues to own the school's career scoring average which now stands at 73.27.
Her average per round so far this season is 71.77, which is the school's best single-season average.
