England's Charley Hull seeks first LPGA major on home soil, and believes we could be in for some very low scores at the AIG Women's Open.

Unlike many players teeing it up in the final major of the season at this week's AIG Women's Open, England's Charley Hull already knows a thing or two about Walton Heath

Only the stunning Surrey venue, located just half an hour away from where Hull lives, will be playing a lot different to the one she typically plays with her pals come the first round on Thursday. 

That's because the tees are up, at least for Hull who always plays here from the tips.

While Walton Heath will play a shorter golf course to the one Hull is used to this week at 6,881 yards as opposed to the 7,000-yard mark, the two-time LPGA Tour champion believes it won't necessarily prove an advantage for her given she loves to bash her TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus Driver just about everywhere. 

This week's championship will be contested over a composite layout of the club’s Old and New Courses (16 on Old, 2 on New), something that will be different for Hull to get her head around, too. 

There will not always be a requirement to pull out the driver this week otherwise you will run out of room and find arguably the biggest danger at Walton Heath, as its name suggests, the heather. 

Hull is still expecting low scores though. 

"I've actually played it a few times but I've not played it off these tees," said Hull, who will be taking advantage of home comforts and sleeping in her own bed this week. 

"I've played it with my friends and we've both been off the backs, so it's actually playing quite short out there, and I think it will be very scorable."

Hull added: "It won't necessarily be an advantage [shorter yardage] because a few holes I won't be hitting driver on, and that's a rescue. It's just getting your head around that. There's nothing too much to worry about.

"When I played with my friends, I pretty much go through every single shot and take driver on every hole. Whatever I do, you need a driver, so I might -- with my caddie, he's actually telling me how to play the golf course properly."

Hull, who finished runner-up at the 2023 US Women's Open at famed Pebble Beach last month, will be looking to land her first LPGA major this week. 

She's out with Nelly Korda and Lydia Ko for the first two rounds, something she is really excited about. 

"I like them both," said Hull.

"They are both really nice. I like Nelly and I like Lydia.

"Obviously me and Lydia have played a lot together throughout the years because we are turned pro fairly young, and I'll be looking forward to that. That will be fun."
