Charley Hull is the latest high-profile professional to be announced for this year’s Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship, to be held at Nailcote Hall from 8-9 August.
The Ladies European Tour and Solheim Cup star is no stranger to the Cromwell Course at Nailcote Hall, having played there as a child. This year, Charley will be taking part in the tournament's Professional Championship on 8–9 August, with a prize fund of €150,00 on offer and €50,000 going to the event’s winner.
Since turning professional aged just 17 in 2013, Charley has already achieved plenty in her career so far. Having won events on both the Ladies European Tour and LPGA Tour, and making appearances in the Solheim Cup team on three occasions, Charley looks set to dominate the ladies’ game for years to come, but for more reasons than just her impressive victories; Charley is a real ebassador for women's golf, and takes no prisoners in arguing that golf is not a man's world.
As her stock continues to rise in golf, and the female game increases in popularity, Charley has become the poster girl of Sky Sports Golf, who will also be covering the Championship this summer.
Nailcote Hall will always have a special place in Charley’s heart as she has participated at the event several times, winning the Norma C Herd Silver Salver for best amateur- and one of the venue’s bars is even named after her!
"I always love returning to Nailcote Hall as the Cromwell Course is a place that I spent a lot of time learning the sport when I was younger", commented Hull.
"The Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship has grown significantly since I first played in it and I can’t wait to see who I’ll be playing with this year!"
The Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship welcomes men and women of all ages and golfing ability, making it one of the most inclusive golfing events in the country. Last year’s event saw a whole host of high-profile female golfers take part, including Dame Laura Davies, Trish Johnson, Rebecca Artis, Carly Booth, and Amy Boulden.
Two-time Major winner and event host Tony Jacklin CBE discussed Charley coming on board for this year’s Championship, commenting
"It is great to see Charley returning to the event, she knows exactly what the Cromwell Course is all about having played the event several times before in her youth, and now as one of the world’s best ladies’ players, it will be great to welcome her back".
Charley joins Tony and 1991 Masters champion, Ian Woosnam OBE, at this year’s Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship, and with more professional names set to be announced soon, the championship promises 4 days of great golfing fun and action: the Celebrity-Amateur Golf Day (August 7th, 2018), the Professional Championship (August 8th & 9th, 2018) and finally, the Celebrity-Amateur Grand Finale Golf Day (August 10th).
