Katherine Hull

katherine hull picturesKatherine Hull won the Canadian Women's Open for her first LPGA Tour victory. It was Hull's third Top 10 finish of 2008 and jumped her into the Top 20 on the LPGA money list.

Katherine is one of the Aussies on tour. She was part of Australia's winning team at the 2002 World Team Championships. She played collegiately for Pepperdine, where she was a two-time first-team All-American selection, won eight tournaments, was named 2003 NCAA Player of the Year and won the Dinah Shore Award in 2003.

She turned pro in 2003 and headed to the Futures Tour, where she quickly won twice - including her very first tournament as a pro. Later that year at Q-School, Katherine earned non-exempt status for the LPGA, and 2004 was her rookie season.

In that rookie season, her best finish was sixth; and in 2005, she had a runner-up. Both years Katherine was inside the Top 70 on the LPGA money list. But 2006 was a struggle, with only five cuts made. She rebounded in 2007, finishing 60th on the money list, and is having a breakout 2008.
