Charley Hull hoping to have a perfect week on Coast

ENGLISH teenage phenomenon Charley Hull says her idea of a perfect day is a round of golf in the morning and a visit to the beach in the afternoon.

The 18-year-old became the youngest player to win the order of merit last year, pocketing almost $A385,000 after posting eight top-10 finishes.

While Hull (pictured) is the pre-event favourite, a host of other overseas players - including defending champion Cheyenne Woods, France's Gwladys Nocera, South African Lee Anne Pace and Canada's Lorie Kane - all have excellent credentials.

Woods - the niece of former world No.1 Tiger Woods - finished on 16-under-par last year to win by two shots from Australian amateur Minjee Lee.
