Linda Henriksson: WAPT Victory

Linda Henriksson is a pro golfer from Finland who has won on the LET Access Series, the feeder tour to the Ladies European Tour. In 2019, Linda is playing mostly in America and she has Symetra Tour status. But the week of April 8-14, 2019, Henriksson was in Louisiana playing the Atchafalaya Basin Championship. That's a tournament on the Women's All Pro Tour (WAPT). And Henriksson emerged as the champ — her first win the United States.

Jillian Hollis Claims First Symetra Tour Victory

Jillian Hollis earned her first career win on the Symetra Tour at the 2019 IOA Championship, and she did it with a late birdie and a late eagle in the final round. After struggling in very windy conditions for much of the round, Hollis rolled in a birdie putt on the 15th hole, then eagled the par-5 16th. After parring out, she finished at 4-under 212, one stroke ahead of runners-up Julieta Granada and Amy Lee. While it was her first win on the Symetra Tour, it wasn't the first high finish for Hollis, who joined the turn after turning pro in 2018. She finished eighth earlier this year in the SKYiGOLF Championship. Hollis had three Top 10s in her rookie year of 2018, including a runner-up finish.What's @freewilly_jilly working on?
