Golf: Liselotte Neumann praises Charley Hull

August 20, 2013

Europe Solheim Cup Captain Liselotte Neumann hailed Charley Hull as a “special girl” after she helped Europe win the Solheim Cup 18-10 in America for the first time last weekend.

After an impressive tournament performance, including a victory over former world number two Paula Creamer in the singles, Neumann said, “She was on my junior team two years ago and she’s just a special girl.

“She has a special game and she brings a lot of energy to our team and she’s just a terrific player. She plays in a fearless way and it was just awesome to have her on our team and I think we all love Charley.”

The 17 year old only turned professional this summer and was one of six European players making their debuts in the matchplay tournament. “I gave myself high hopes and I just wanted to prove people wrong,” she said.

“I’m 17 and people were wondering if I could perform under the pressure, but I go out and enjoy it, which takes care of the pressure.”

Charley is definitely one to watch for the future and we’re looking forward to seeing it!
