Golfer Charley Hull signs pro deal on 18th birthday

It has been quite a week for the Northamptonshire golfer Charley Hull.

On Sunday she won her first ever tournament on the Ladies European Tour and now she has signed a contract as a Touring Professional at Woburn Golf Club near Milton Keynes.

And if that wasn't enough, today's her 18th birthday.

Charley said: "I've always dreamed of it for a long time, you know five second place finishes in my first five events last year, it was like I don't want to be the girl who finishes second.

"So then I got the win out of the way and now hopefully there are many more to come".
