In 2016, she won the prestigious CME Group Tour Championship, the season-ending event of the LPGA Tour.

Hull was first introduced to golf aged two, and began playing with her father at Kettering Golf Club. She left school aged 13 to be home schooled, and started playing in amateur tournaments.

Hull turned professional on 1 January 2013. She made her professional debut in March 2013 and reeled off five consecutive second-place finishes on the Ladies European Tour: Lalla Meryem Cup, South African Women’s Open, Turkish Airlines Ladies Open, Deloitte Ladies Open and a playoff loss at the UniCredit Ladies German Open.


Charley Hull won The Ascendant LPGA benefiting Volunteers of America title in Texas, her first LPGA title in almost six years.

After 11 holes, Hull was tied for the lead with Lydia Ko and Xiyu Lin, but she recorded three birdies in a row to edge ahead.

The chasing pack kept the pressure on Hull throughout, with Lin birdieing the 16th and registering an eagle on the 17th to move within one shot of the leader.

Hull made par on the final hole, with Lin requiring a birdie to force a play-off, but she fell just short to hand Hull victory.

“I have come close a few times since (last winning a title) but I have put in some good work this year,” said Hull.

“I think I know my game is there, it was just my confidence and i feel really good, I felt in control of my round, I feel very proud of myself.

“(On chasing pack putting on pressure) I found it all exciting, when Xiyu Lin made eagle on 17, I enjoyed that. It was great fun.”

Hull’s last triumph on the Tour came in 2016 when she won the CME Group Tour Championship in Florida.

Much was expected of Charley Hull when she got through LPGA Q School as an 18-year-old in 2014. More at least than just one victory in her first seven-plus years on tour.

At the time, the Englishwoman was coming off winning the Ladies European Tour Order of Merit and had become the youngest golfer to ever compete in the Solheim Cup a year earlier.

On Sunday, however, Hull was able to (finally) claim win No. 2, beating China’s Xiyu Lin by at The Ascendant LPGA. A final-round 64—with eight birdies to bring her week-long total to 23—gave Hull an 18-under 266 total at Old American Golf Club in The Colony, Texas.

  • Money won :  $255,000

If the victory was a long time coming, it was something Hull had perhaps foreshadowed in the 2022 season, having finished in the top-10 four times and the top 20 in seven of her previous 16 starts.

With the victory, Hull earned a prize money payout of $255,000 from an overall purse of $1.7 million. The first-place payday put Hull past the $1 million in earnings in 2022 and made her the sixth English golfer to win multiple times on the LPGA Tour.
