Roll of Honour

Ladies European Tour Rookie of the Year and Order of Merit winner (2019).

Did you know?

Following an excellent amateur career, Henseleit launched into her professional career in 2019 in dramatic style. Nine top ten finishes during her first season as a pro on the Ladies European Tour culminated in winning the season-ending Kenya Ladies Open. With that win came enough points not only to win the Tour's Rookie of the Year Award, but also the Tour's season-long Order of Merit ... a feat only previously accomplished by Laura Davies (1985) and Carlota Ciganda (2012).
