Charley Hull Heads to Solheim Cup in The Form of Her Life
CHARLEY HULL made her Solheim Cup debut when she was just 17 years old. She will travel to Spain next week to make her sixth appearance in the competition - and will do so in the form of her life.
She finished runner-up at both the US Women’s Open and the Women’s Open. The only thing she hasn’t been able to achieve is a victory.
And the 27-year-old from Kettering came desperately close again in Ohio last Sunday, charging from five shots behind with eight holes to play to force a play-off with Australia's Minjee Lee.
Hull came within an inch of success when her audacious putt from off the back of the green on the first extra hole stopped rolling just one revolution short of disappearing underground.
Lee, the 2022 US Open winner, capitalised at the next with a stunning approach to tap-in range, leaving Hull to bank her sixth runners-up cheque in the past 10 months.
She has no intention of enduring another second place next week as Europe attempt to land a record third win in a row.
"I'm looking forward to Solheim," Hull said. "I'm looking forward to doing some work with my coach and just getting into it again and closing out the season."
Hull is particularly enthused by the prospect of playing for skipper Suzann Pettersen on the Costa del Sol.
"Suzann is going to be a great captain," Hull said. "She's one of my favourite players ever to play the game, so it's pretty cool. I wish she was on the team."
More pertinently, Pettersen will be absolutely delighted to have such an in-form golfer in her team.
