Esther Henseleit LPGA golfer

Esther Henseleit just posted her best finish to date on the LPGA Tour: solo fourth. The 22-year-old from Germany was an LPGA rookie in 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the affect it had on the LPGA schedule last year, Henseleit is still technically considered a rookie in 2021.

But she's not playing like a rookie. Henseleit carded rounds of 70, 64 and 67 to finish solo fourth in the 2021 Marathon LPGA Classic, earning the first paycheck of her career to top $100,000.

Just a week earlier, Henseleit had tied for fourth place in the Volunteers of America Classic. She had a 12th-place showing earlier in the year, and finished 15th in the most-recent major, the Women's PGA Championship.

After her showing in the Marathon Classic, Henseleit ranked 14th on the LPGA in scoring average, seventh in eagles, 15th in rounds under par, 16th in putts per GIR, and fourth in the Rookie of the Year points standings. She has two career wins as a professional, the 2019 Skafto Open on the LET Access Series, and the 2019 Kenya Ladies Open on the Ladies European Tour.
