Hull finishes as top Brit in opening major

Leading county professional Charley Hull finished as the joint-highest placed British golfer in the opening major of the season as she grabbed a tie for 14th spot in the ANA Inspiration at Mission Hills in California.

The Wellingborough golfer was in stunning form on the quartet of par five holes on the first two days as she posted five birdies and an eagle whilst compiling back-to-back scores of three-under-par 69.

Hull bagged five more birdies in a third round 71 to stay in contention, but despite averaging an incredible 332 yards off the tee on the final day, she couldn’t close in on the leaders as she shot a level par 72.
