No form worries for Hull

1st August 2019, 17:54 by Jack Ogalbe

Charley Hull says she was pleased with the way in which she managed her game as she carded an opening 67 at the Women's British Open.

The home hopeful admitted to nerves on the first tee after seeing Rory McIlroy hook his ball out of bounds at The Open at Royal Portrush but managed to find the fairway at Woburn.

Hull has local knowledge on her side having been a member at the club since she was nine and used her experience to card a bogey-free 67 in Buckinghamshire.

Her tally of five-under places her in the early contention continues and the 23-year-old admitted after her round that she was feeling good about her game, especially after overcoming that initial tension.

"With that first tee shot, you feel silly if you miss the fairway because it's so wide," Hull said. "It was not the best tee shot but I got it down there. My hands were shaking but some of my best shots have come when shaking. It's not necessarily the worst thing.

"I feel like I've been playing well all year, I've just struggled to trust myself sometimes, so that's where I suppose I haven't been scoring.

"But today I just went out there and trusted myself and I've got to trust myself. I feel like I'm in a good mindset."
