Charley Hull, the 17-year-old rookie sensation of the European Solheim Cup team was lauded by Scottish tennis sensation Andy Murray’s mother and coach Judy who tweeted, “Love the way Charley Hull just gets on with it. No messing. No pouting. No lippy. No shades. No face paint. Cool kid.”
Anyone who watched Hull and 18-year-old American teen star Lexi Thompson trade blows in their four-ball match on Saturday or Hull’s total domination of Paula Creamer 5 and 4 in Sunday’s Singles had to be impressed by her incredible shot making and Cool Hand Luke demeanor.
But the most refreshing and mature comment came from Hull herself. When asked if she was affected by the pressure of an event that buckles the knees of the wiliest veterans she said, “I didn’t really feel nervous, to be honest. I’m not going to die if I hit a bad shot. I just hit it, find it, and hit it again.”
A very wise perspective from a youthful messenger.
