Charley Hull (14) wins The Leveret at Formby

Northamptonshire teenager Charley Hull gave herself a belated 14th birthday present when she won The Leveret at Formby Ladies with a five-under par total of 137.
She celebrated her birthday a week before and is one of the youngest-ever winners of the competition. The prestigious 36-hole scratch event, which is also open to professionals, is the curtain-raiser to the season.
Charley, a past winner of the English girls’ U13 championship, had six birdies in her morning round of 66.
In the afternoon she returned level par 71 with four birdies and four bogeys. The runner-up, one shot behind, was England international Charlotte Ellis, from Gloucestershire, who had a pair of very tidy 69s.
The event attracted a very good entry and competitors played in fine but breezy conditions.
