WATCH: Charley Hull's "shy kids don't get sweets" shot from US Women's Open

Charley Hull put on a dominate performance around Pebble Beach on Sunday during the final round the US Women's Open.

And while it didn't prove to be enough to take the trophy, it did produce a highlight-reel round summed up by one saying:

"Shy kids don't get sweets."

That's exactly what the 27-year-old told her caddie at the par-5 18th.

Hull started the round seven strokes back of the leader, but had made six birdies and an eagle - as well as two bogeys - by the time she reached the final hole of the tournament.

Still, she was a few shots back.

Off the tee, Hull hit a solid 245-yard shot that ended just slightly right of the fairway. Unfortunately, it landed next to a massive tree that limited her options.

She could play it safe and lay up to look for a birdie at best, but as Hull can be heard saying, she was still a few shots back and needed to try for eagle to truly throw herself into the mix.

And she nearly pulled it off.

Hull's shot almost reached the green, but rolled into the left greenside bunker before it could get there.

Despite a valiant effort and an incredible try, she took three more shots from there to settle for par.

Still, from Hull's perspective, it was worth a shot.

"At the end of the day I had to make an eagle to give it a chance for a playoff or something. I'm not playing for second place," she told reporters afterwards.

"So I said, do I get sweets, which is candy, so it means like I've got to go and take it, so I just hit trapped 3-wood, hit a great shot. Just rolled into that left bunker but it was a good golf shot. It was a shame because hit a good tee shot straight at that tree but I didn't think it was going to end right behind it."

Hull ultimately carded a 6-under 66 for the low round of the day, which catapulted her up into a tie for second.

She finished three strokes back of winner Allisen Corpuz.
