US Women’s Open: Charley Hull was ecstatic to see her hard work pay off after recovering from two missed cuts to finish second in the US Women’s Open.
Hull fired a six-under 66 on the final day at Pebble Beach to tie for second with South Korea’s Jiyai Shin, three strokes behind Allisen Corpuz, and equalled her best-ever finish in a major.
The 27-year-old blended an eagle and six birdies with two bogeys to post the day’s lowest total and come within a stroke of the lowest final round in US Women’s Open history, with her aggressive style of play assisting her ascent.
“When it comes to life,” Hull stated, “I’m quite an aggressive person. I just have the impression that I’m quite aggressive on the golf course. I enjoy looking for pins. At the end of the day, it’s only a game, so have fun with it. If you desire anything, I’ll go get it for you. That’s my way of thinking.
“I just make as many birdies as I can because at the end of the day I’m chasing it down, so it’s quite fun. I love to trail someone because it lets me to make more birdies and climb the leaderboard. That was definitely my approach.”
Hull won her second LPGA Tour triumph last October at the Volunteers of America and had a solid start to her 2023 season, being runner-up at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions and had six top-25 finishes in her first seven starts.
The Englishwoman withdrew from the Meijer LPGA Classic last month and then missed the cut by eight strokes at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship a week later, shooting rounds of 79 and 76, prompting her to work with her coach ahead of the year’s third women’s major.
“I worked hard on my swing last week when I was at home, so I feel really confident and will just keep working on it,” Hull added. “I’m looking forward to the Evian Championship right now.”
