Charley Hull had so much fun shooting a 7-under 64 on Friday that she did it again on Sunday.
Tied after the first three rounds with Xiyu Lin, Hull made four birdies over her final seven holes to separate for a one-shot win at 18 under at the 2022 Ascendant LPGA benefiting Volunteers of America at Old American Golf Club in The Colony, Texas.
The win is Hull’s second on the LPGA and first since the 2016 CME Group Tour Championship. The 26-year-old Englishwoman also has a trio of wins on the Ladies European Tour.
“I love a challenge, and this golf course is challenging. I play off the backs at home, off the back tees with the boys, and I always try and push myself to tricky golf courses when I’m at home so when I’m on tour, they are a bit shorter and a good length,” Hull explained. “So this week, I felt like it very much suited my game, and yeah, I found it very scorable for myself.”
Lin and Lydia Ko each shot 6-under 65 in the final round to finish second and third, respectively, with last week’s winner, Atthaya Thitikul, in fourth at 12 under.
