As the off season keeps players from competing on the Road to the LPGA, SymetraTour.com will run a new feature to keep fans in touch with the future stars of women’s golf. This edition of Time to Meet… features Florida native and two-year member Stefanie Kenoyer. The Furman alum was a two-time individual winner of the Southern Conference Women’s Golf Championship (2008, 2009) and was twice named the conference’s Player of the Year (2009, 2010) while competing for the Paladins. Kenoyer was selected to the All-Southern Conference Team each of her four years of her college career. In her rookie season in 2011, she made 12 starts, making six cuts and recorded a season-best T29 at the Tate & Lyle Players Championship. She would go on to record three top-20 finishes in 2012 including a career-best T17 at the Sara Bay Classic. See what television show she would like to be on, what has been the most rewarding charitable thing she has done and what music genre she loved as a kid.
