Bronte Law and Jodi Ewart Shadoff have hit out at fellow English golfers Charley Hull and Georgia Hall over their late withdrawal from the International Crown.

Hull and Hall dropped out of this week’s team event in San Francisco, the former citing stomach issues and the latter complaining of an injury in her left foot.

That forced Team England into a scramble for replacements, with Alice Hewson and Liz Young travelling at short notice to California to team up with Law and Ewart Shadoff.

Hull and Hall’s withdrawal was confirmed by the LPGA on Monday morning, leaving their teammates fuming.

“I think anyone with some level of decency would send their teammates a message that they weren’t coming, not find out from other players on tour who have heard things from them saying things at the tournament last week,” Law told Golf Digest. “I don’t think that that’s a lot to ask for.”

Ewart Shadoff added: “Obviously, it’s disappointing, especially to come so late. I’m sure it’s disappointing mainly for Hanwha [title sponsor of the event].

“I think what they’ve done for the tournament and to bring it back, we’re all just really grateful to be here.”

One person who is bound to be perturbed by this friction is European Solheim Cup captain Suzann Pettersen.

The quartet were part of the side that won the Solheim Cup at Gleneagles in 2019, with Hull, Hall and Law all firmly in the mix to qualify for September’s contest at Finca Cortesin.

Team England is the No.5 seed for the International Crown and will face the US, Sweden and China in the pool stages before the top two teams advance to the semi-finals and final on Sunday.
