NEW YORK (AP) - Maria Hernandez, who helped Purdue win three Big Ten team championships, has been chosen the nation's top college golfer.

The senior earned the Honda Sports Award on Thursday, given annually to female athletes in 12 NCAA sports.

Hernandez, of Pamploma, Spain, is the most decorated golfer in Purdue history. She won six tournaments this season, and birdied two of her final three holes to win the NCAA individual title. She had a low round of 67 and a 72.8 stroke average.

She was selected the school's first National Player of the Year and is eligible for the Honda-Broderick Cup, which will be announced June 22 in New York City.
