The field for the 2015 RACV Ladies Masters is taking shape nicely with the confirmation that England’s young gun, Charley Hull will be competing for the title in February.
The 2014 Order of Merit winner on the Ladies European Tour will be one of the favourites when she walks the fairways of the RACV Royal Pines Resort from the 12th to 15th February on the Gold Coast.
The talented Hull certainly enjoys the location of the tournament, “I love the fact that at the RACV Ladies Masters we can play golf in the morning and go to the Beach in the afternoon. That’s just about my perfect day! I’m really looking forward to being back on the Gold Coast this year. “ Hull stated.
The 18- year-old heading into her third year as a professional has already accomplished a lot in a short pro career. In her rookie year in 2013, she finished runner-up in her first five events, finished sixth on the Order of Merit and subsequently she went on to win the Rookie of Year award on the LET. Hull was also the youngest player ever to play in the Solheim Cup and was part of the winning European Team that won the Cup on American soil and in the process she defeated major champion Paula Creamer in her singles match.
Hull won her maiden professional event early in 2014, Lalla Meryem Cup. She had a very consistent season posting another eight top 10 finishes to finish with Euro 263,096. A rule change saw the talented golfer finish on top of the LET Order of Merit (OOM). Hull was the youngest player to win the OOM.
The English player visited the Gold Coast for the first time in 2014 and is looking forward to improving her 10th placing in her first outing.
Tournament Chairman Bob Tuohy said “We are thrilled to have the exciting Hull returning to the Gold Coast as Charley together with many other emerging young players will indeed mould the future of world women’s golf and certainly generate huge interest in the RACV Ladies Masters.”
Hull will have to get past the likes of local Katherine Kirk, defending champion Cheyenne Woods, three time winner Laura Davies and South African Lee-Anne Pace in the field.
