CHARLEY HULL | LET

Charley Hull has made history as the youngest winner of the 2014 Ladies European Tour ISPS HANDA Order of Merit title, just 12 months after being named ‘Rookie of the Year’.


The 18-year-old from England capped her second season on tour finishing in a tie for fifth finish in the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters on the Majlis Course at Emirates Golf Club.

With season’s earnings of €263,09, she finished €29,808 ahead of second placed Gwladys Nocera.

“It's good to win,” said Hull. “I didn't really know coming into this week. Just the back nine today, I just thought don't make any silly mistakes. I doubled the first but got two birdies on the bounce back so pretty happy with myself there.

“I went double, birdie, birdie, bogey, birdie, so it was an interesting front nine.  But towards the end of the back nine, I really got the feeling with my woods off the tee. I started feeling so much more confident. Just working on getting a bit more width on my swing. I definitely feel a lot more confident.”
Charley Hull won her first professional title at the Lalla Meryem Cup in Morocco.

Hull, who was the youngest woman ever to compete in the international Solheim Cup matches in 2013, continued to impress in 2014.

On March 16, four days before her 18th birthday, she won her first professional title at the Lalla Meryem Cup in Morocco. She went on to record eight additional top ten finishes during the season.

This included two seconds at the Sanya Ladies Open in China and Ladies German Open presented by Marriott, as well as third in the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open.

Wales’ Amy Boulden emulated Hull by winning the ‘Rookie of the Year’ honour.

The top Scot on the LET Order of Merit was Kylie Walker, who enjoyed her best year on the circuit to date. Twice a winner this season, she had earnings of €103,831. Sally Watson finished 23rd having earned €73,258.
