Young Hull Leads Airbus LPGA Classic

Charley Hull
THE YOUTH MOVEMENT CONTINUES on the LPGA Tour. England's Charley Hull, 18, is atop the leaderboard at the Airbus LPGA Classic. Hull fired a 65 in the first round and is currently at 12 under (five under so far today), two strokes ahead of Jessica Korda. The second round is in progress. Many players in the field haven't teed off.

Young Hull got into the tournament via a sponsor exemption.

"I try not to think about it too much," Hull said, "because I've got the wind at my back now. I just keep on playing and hopefully I can get more wins and get my card for next year."

The Airbus LPGA Classic is being played on the RTJ Golf Trail, Magnolia Grove, The Crossings in Mobile, Alabama. The par-72 layout measures 6,521 yards.

The final two rounds will be televised on Golf Channel from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

It would be a nice way for her to avoid Q-School.

She looks like she is going to make it on tour one way or the other.
