England teenager Charley Hull is ranked sixth in the world after her win in the Harder Hall Invitational in Florida.
She moved up four places in this week’s World Amateur Golf Ranking, to reach her highest position so far, climbing four places to world number six.
The 15-year-old international from Woburn won the Harder Hall – the first event of the Orange Blossom Tour – with rounds of 70, 74, 69 and 69 for a six -under-par total of 282.
She’s currently playing in the tour’s second event, the South Atlantic Amateur Championship, known as the SALLY. Charley is in second place at the halfway stage on four under par, having scored 72, 68. She is two behind Thailand’s Ariya Juntanugarn, who was runner-up in the Harder Hall.
Charley, the English open strokeplay champion, began her assault on the World Amateur Golf Ranking 12 months ago when she finished 12th in the Harder Hall, runner-up in the South Atlantic Women’s Amateur Championship and then won the Jones-Doherty Match Play Championship.
