Selanee Henderson

Selanee Henderson is one of the 12 cast members of the Golf Channel series Big Break Atlantis, which debuts in May 2012. In its press release announcing the contestants, the Golf Channel included this about the 25-year-old Californian:

A tough competitor on and off the course, Henderson is looking to capitalize on her success on the 2011 Cactus Tour (one win and one runner-up finish) to Big Break Atlantis. A natural athlete, Selanee also is the younger sister of former Olympic wrestler and current MMA fighter Dan Henderson.


Younger sister of Dan Henderson? I had no idea.

Selanee played collegiate golf at Cal-Irvine, graduating in 2008 with a B.S. in Social Ecology. She also graduated with six tournament wins, including the 2006 Big West Conference title. She was an all-Big West selection four straight years, and was the conference Player of the Year in 2006.

Henderson turned pro in 2008, and has played three seasons (2009-11) on the Futures Tour. Her best finish to date is a runner-up at the 2009 Mercedes-Benz of Kansas City Championship.
