Charley Hull will not be selected for amateur Great Britain & Ireland team for the Curtis Cup after opting to play in the first Major on the LPGA Tour at the end of March.
The 15-year-old Woburn golfer, who has been representing England in the Nations Cup event at this week’s Spanish Amateur Championship, has been told she will not be selected to play against USA in the June after accepting an invitation to the professional Kraft Nabsico Championship.
Hull, who won Harder Hall Invitational tournament on the Florida Orange Blossom Tour in January and is currently number nine in the Women’s World Amateur Rankings, England number one and the English and Welsh open strokeplay champion, will be replaced by Georgia Hall for the team trial at The Nairn Golf Club.
There will however still be one representative from Woburn GC in the Curtis Cup preliminary squad with 17-year-old Lauren Taylor selected after she became the youngest-ever winner at last year’s British Ladies’ Championship at the age of 16 and also clinched the 2011 BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award.
However, earlier this year Taylor was ruled out of an automatic place in the 2012 US Women’s Open Championship following an error by the USGA.
