Charley Hull Wins 2019 LET Opener

The 2019 Ladies European Tour season teed off in Abu Dhabi and Charley Hull claimed the trophy — her first win in more than two years.

It's easy to forget how young Hull is because she's been around so long. Her first victory happened at age 16 in 2014 on the Ladies European Tour. At age 17 she was playing in the Solheim Cup. And she won the prestigious 2016 CME Group Tour Championship on the LPGA Tour.

But Hull hadn't won since then. Until the LET season-opener, the 2019 Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open. Hull earned the win with a final score of 8-under 208, shooting 67-72-69. She finished one stroke better than runner-up Marianne Skarpnord.

It was a wire-to-win win for Hull. But after Skarpnord set the clubhouse lead at 7-under, Hull got to 8-under and then needed par on the last to win it. She got up-and-down from a greenside bunker to do just that.

But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
