Kettering golfer Charley Hull has taken the runner-up spot in the Ladies’ European Amateur Ranking for for 2012.

Georgia Hall, who is the British girls’ champion, is the first English player to top the table since the rankings began in 2005 and 16-year-old Hull finished just behind us with Ireland’s Stephanie Meadow third.

The rankings reflect the position of European players in the Women’s World Amateur Rankings, where Hall is currently fourth and Hull eighth.

Hull won the 2012 Harder Hall Invitational in the USA and was a member of the winning GB&I Curtis Cup team.

In April she played her first major professional championship, the Kraft Nabisco in California, and finished 38th.

She also played in three Ladies European Tour events, finishing fifth in the Turkish Airlines Ladies’ Open and 18th in both the Irish Ladies’ Open and the Ladies’ British Masters.

In addition she qualified for the Ricoh Women’s British Open and also represented England in the women’s World Amateur Team Championship.
