Linda Henriksson

A short video Linda Henriksson posted to one of her social media accounts caught my eye - a coordination drill that she does:

Do you think you could do that? As I told Linda on Facebook, I'd probably fall over (or break my shins) if I tried. But, according to Linda, "You should try! It's not as complicated as it looks!" So if you want to work on your hand-eye coordination, give this drill a try.

Linda is from Finland, and as a little girl her interests were more in football (soccer), track and field, ballet and piano. But she took up golf at age 8, and one year later was playing in under-12 tournaments. She began high school at age 14 - she's one smart golfer - and after graduating high school in 2008 moved to Sweden to go to university.

Linda turned pro in 2011 and played the Nordea Tour in 2011-12. In 2013 she moved up to the LET Access Series, the feeder tour into the Ladies European Tour. Henriksson finished 13th on the LAS money list that year with finishes including third, fourth and eighth. Then, at LET Q-School at the end of 2013, she earned partial status on the LET for the 2014 season.

Henriksson got into five LET events last year and played more on the Access Series (including a fourth-place finish), then went back to Q-School and improved her position for 2015.

Among the other places we've noticed Linda was on GolfSpelledBackwards.com's ranking of the Sexiest Women in Golf for 2014.
