TA Golf is pleased to announce two of Team Europe’s best players from their Solheim Cup win are heading to the Gold Coast in February for the 25th staging of the Volvik RACV Ladies Masters.
Swede Caroline Hedwall and England’s Charley Hull will be taking on the likes of Australia’s own Karrie Webb, Katherine Hull-Kirk, Rebecca Artis, Stacey Keating, Kristie Smith and Lindsey Wright from the 6 to 9 February at the RACV Royal Pines Resort.
Hedwall was the stand out player during the Solheim Cup, she won all five matches she was involved in and was the first player in the history of the Cup to do so.
The 24 year-old is currently ranked 23rd on the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings and is coming off her best season as a professional. It started perfectly with a win in Sydney at the Bing Lee Fujitsu Women’s NSW Open, she then went on to make 21 from 23 cuts on the LPGA and posted six top 10 finishes. Hedwall’s best result was third on three occasions, including at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. She finished the year 14th on the Money List with US$763,104.
Hedwall has loves coming to Gold Coast and lists Australia as her favourite country to visit.
Hull, is another teenage sensation in women’s professional golf at the moment. The 17-year-old from England had an incredible rookie year in Europe. She started her career with four consecutive runner-up finishes and went on to record another five top 10 finishes in her 14 events in 2013 on the LET.
The talented player understandably took home the Rookie of the Year award on the LET, after finishing sixth on the Order of Merit with Euro 135,994.
Tournament Chairman Bob Tuohy said “It is fantastic news that both Caroline and Charley are playing, they both had great seasons in 2013 and certainly add to the calibre of players heading to the Gold Coast for the 25th Volvik RACV Ladies Masters. The field is coming together very nicely.”
The Volvik RACV Ladies Masters will be broadcast from the Gold Coast by ABC Sport, live throughout Australia, on Saturday 8 February between 2:00pm to 6:00pm and Sunday 9 February between 2:00pm to 6:00pm.
