Did you know?

Hull was first introduced to golf aged two, and grew-up honing her skills at Kettering Golf Club with her father. After an impressive amateur career she made her Ladies European Tour professional debut in 2013, and reeled off five second place finishes, including a playoff loss in the Ladies German Open. Five more top ten finishes allowed her to finish sixth on the tour's Order of Merit, and claim the 2013 LET Rookie of the Year award.

Such was Hull's success in her rookie season, she was selected to play in the 2013 Solheim Cup, where she recorded a notable 5 and 4 singles win against five-time Solheim Cup star Paula Creamer. Hull chalked up her first LET win in March 2014, just four days before her 18th birthday.
