    Early life

    Hull was first introduced to golf aged two, and began playing with her father at Kettering Golf Club. She left school aged 13 to be home schooled, and started playing in amateur tournaments. Both of Hull's maternal grandparents were born in Poland and she openly states that she is of Polish descent.

    Amateur

    Based at Woburn Golf and Country Club, she spends her winters with her family based in Florida.

    She came to public attention aged 9, when she won the UK National Ladies Championship at Turnberry. Aged 10 she played alongside Morgan Pressel in the British Open Pro-Am. Hull then won several amateur events in the United States and Great Britain and has ranked in the top-10 of the World Amateur Golf Ranking.

    Hull played on the Great Britain and Ireland Curtis Cup team in 2012. She lost her fourballs and foursomes matches on the first two days but won her singles match on the final day as the GB&I team beat the United States team 10½–9½. She had initially been removed from the team in a dispute with the Ladies Golf Union over a mandatory training session that conflicted with the Kraft Nabisco Championship, a major championship on the LPGA Tour, to which Hull had been invited. The LGU re-instated Hull to the team and Hull finished tied for 38th at the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

    Hull also competed in the 2012 Women's British Open, where she was tied for third after the first round.

    Professional career

    Hull made her professional debut in March 2013, and has publicly spoken out against single-sex clubs.

    In August 2013, Hull was selected by European Solheim Cup captain Liselotte Neumann to compete in the 2013 Solheim Cup, the youngest person ever to play in the tournament. Neumann later praised Hull's performance.
