Russell Henley Voted March PGA TOUR Player Of The Month Presented By Avis

PARSIPPANY, N.J. and PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla., April 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PGA TOUR and Avis Car Rental announced today that Russell Henley has been voted the March PGA TOUR Player of the Month presented by Avis. As the official rental car company of the PGA TOUR and in its third year as sponsor of the PGA TOUR Player of the Month program, Avis will make a $50,000 contribution to the Macon (Ga.) Volunteer Clinic in Henley's name.

In a fan decision on PGATOUR.COM, Henley outpolled Chesson Hadley, Patrick Reed and Matt Every. The four were nominated by a panel of national media for their performances during the month of March.

"Being voted the March PGA TOUR Player of the Month is a huge honor," said Henley. "Avis' generous contribution will go to the Macon Volunteer Clinic, a place close to my heart. This medical clinic in my hometown of Macon, Georgia, provides medical, dental care and medication assistance to working uninsured adult residents. With a volunteer base of 200 people and a staff of eight, the clinic provides services for more than 6,000 patient visits each year. Thank you to everyone who voted and a big thank you to Avis for an amazing gift."

The highlight of March for Henley was his second career PGA TOUR victory in playoff fashion at The Honda Classic, defeating Rory McIlroy, Russell Knox and Ryan Palmer with a birdie-4 on the first hole of sudden death. Henley, 24, is one of just four players under the age of 25 with multiple TOUR wins along with Rory McIlroy (6), Patrick Reed (3) and Harris English (2). Henley finished tied for 47 th at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship and missed the cut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard in his other two starts in March.

"We congratulate Russell Henley on his second career PGA TOUR victory and for being voted the Player of the Month for March," said Jeannine Haas, chief marketing officer, North America, Avis Budget Group. "We're proud to donate $50,000 to his charity of choice in his honor."
