Nov. 14, 2011
SAN DIEGO - San Diego State women's golf head coach Leslie Spalding announced the signing Monday of Emma Henrikson (Malmö, Sweden) to a National Letter of Intent. Henrikson, who is a member of the Swedish national team, will join the Aztecs in the fall of 2012.
"We're thrilled to have Emma join Aztec golf," Spalding said. "She's going to be a very consistent player for us, who has the ability to shoot low scores. She has a phenomenal golf swing and has great length on the course which will play to the strength of our team."
This past summer, Henrikson finished second at the Finnish Amateur Championship with a 4-over 217, and was fourth at the 72-hole Swedish junior national championships at 12-over par. More recently, she won the Skandia Tour Elit No. 6 in September by six strokes and was the medalist at the Scottish Order of Merit stroke-play competition in Scotland in October.
Henrikson is ranked 75th in the World Amateur Golf Rankings with 11, top-10 placements in 13 tournaments in 2011. She was the runner up at both the Norberg Open and the Götenehus Short Game Masters.
Henrikson currently attends Sundsgymnasiet in Vellinge, Sweden and uses Ljunghusen Golf Club in Hollviken, Sweden as her home course. She intends to major in business management at San Diego State.
