Teenage golfer Charley Hull from near Kettering in Northamptonshire will have at least another half a day to prepare for her Solheim Cup debut in America. The event is the women's equivalent of the Ryder Cup.

17-year-old Charley lined up with the European team facing the USA at Friday morning's opening ceremony but isn't taking part in the first session of play.

She's the youngest player in the history of the competition.

Kettering teenager Charley Hull could make golfing history if she's selected to take part in day one of the Solheim Cup at Colorado Golf Club.

At 17, Hull would become the youngest player in the history of the competition if she's picked by European captain Liselotte Neumann to face the Americans in either the foursomes or the fourballs.
