First Back-to-Back Tournament Sweeps in Program History

Kory Henkes was named head coach of the Ole Miss women's golf team on June 22, 2015 and is entering her third season at the helm of the Ole Miss program in 2017-18.  

The 2016-17 season was one of the best in Ole Miss history, giving the Rebels momentum going into Henkes' third season. The Rebels set a new school record for scoring average in Henkes' second year, averaging 298.47 per round—the first sub-300 score in program history. 

Henkes' second year was highlighted by the coach's first individual medalist. On Oct. 25, 2016, junior Katy Harris shot 4-under to win the Palmetto Intercollegiate. Henkes nearly had a second medalist in the spring. Sophomore Martina Flori ended her round tied for first place but was edged by one of the top golfers in the nation and finished in a tie for second. In all, Ole Miss had 10 top-20 finishers.

In her first season, Henkes led the Ole Miss squad to new heights, highlighted by a seventh-place finish at the SEC Championship, which was the best finish for the Rebels since 2010 and the third best finish in program history. The Rebels also took runner-up honors at the 2016 Rebel Intercollegiate. In total, the Rebels set 10 new team or individual records in Henkes’ first year at Ole Miss and saw scoring averages go down significantly across the board.

Henkes came to Oxford after a four-year stint as head coach at GRU Augusta. Henkes brings six years of head coaching experience to Ole Miss.

Henkes was successful in building GRU Augusta into a perennial top-25 program over the course of her four years at the helm. The Jaguars advanced to the NCAA Regionals in three of Henkes' four years and played at the Raleigh regional this past season. Henkes also guided two individuals at the NCAA Regional in Casey Kennedy and Natalie Wille in 2013.

Under Henkes' watch, the Jaguars achieved their highest ranking in program history, checking in at No. 21 in the fall of 2014. GRU Augusta's Dick Wallace Coach of the Year in 2013-14, Henkes and her squad closed the season ranked No. 33 nationally with eight top-five finishes in their nine tournaments, including earning top billing at the 2014 Rebel Intercollegiate and the Lady Pirate Invitational. In total, Henkes guided her GRU Augusta squads to 17 top-five tournament finishes and 38 top-10 individual performances with two medalist honors.

Prior to her appointment at GRU Augusta, Henkes spent two years as the head coach at Charleston Southern. In her first season with the Buccaneers, they claimed the 2010 Big South Championship while setting a new league championship record for lowest 54-hole total. Under the tutelage of Henkes, Olivia Jordan-Higgins captured medalist honors at the 2010 conference tournament and cracked the top 100 in the national rankings (96th) while being nominated for NCAA Woman of the Year. The Lady Bucs registered the most improved GPA (3.51) among all Charleston Southern athletic programs as well as the highest team GPA. They were also recognized by the NGCA for having one of the top-25 team GPAs in the nation.

A 2004 graduate of South Carolina, Henkes is no stranger to the rigors of the SEC and was a member of South Carolina's 2002 SEC Championship team and a four-year letterwinner for the Gamecocks from 2002-04.

Henkes spent time on the LPGA Tour serving as a caddy to Kristy McPherson, who finished in the top 50 on the money list in 2008 and also caddied for her older brother Kyle, who earned his PGA Tour card for 2012 by finishing 15th on the Nationwide Tour money list in 2011.
