Charley Hull in action

was selected to play a key role in the bid to regain the Cup as a member of the Europe challenge against the USA at Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course in Scotland. This was her fourth appearance in the three-day event and she was instrumental in Europe’s success. She first took part in the Solheim Cup as a 17-year-old and had looked forward to playing in Great Britain.

This was potentially the biggest weekend of Charley’s life as next weekend she is to marry the mixed martial arts fighter, Ozzie Smith. She held a pre-wedding tea-party get-together at her house the previous weekend to the Cup event and, reportedly, had left the wedding preparations to her future husband in order to concentrate her efforts on the Solheim Cup.

Charley’s So Close To Biggest Cheque In Women’s Golf History

Top county professional Charley Hull came agonisingly close to winning the biggest cash prize in women’s golf history as she finished runner-up in the LPGA’s season-ending Tour Championship.

With $1.5 million for the winner, the Kettering golfer produced a stunning burst of five birdies in the last seven holes in a final round 66 to set the clubhouse lead – only for Korea’s Sei Young Kim to snatch victory with a birdie on the 72nd hole.

After winning the event in 2016 with a championship record score, Hull’s hopes of another win looked over before they had even started. She bagged a double bogey on her opening hole and sat at three over par after just 121 holes on day one. But Hull fought her way into the tournament with some inspired golf as an eagle on the 17th hole helped her finish with a level par 72, before she bagged seven birdies in a second round 67. Seven more birdies followed in a 66 on day three as she moved up to fourth in standings and although the 23-yeaar-old managed to keep the bogeys off her scorecard on the last day, it wasn’t quite enough to grab the win.

The result still capped a memorable year for Hull as she got married, claimed victory in the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open in January and remained unbeaten in the Solheim Cup as Europe defeated the USA.
