LPGA's Hull of England sidelined by illness

Publish date:

GURNEE, Ill. (AP) Charley Hull has missed the start of her four-ball match in the LPGA's UL International Crown due to illness.

Hull's absence left Melissa Reid playing for England by herself against Japan's Haru Nomura and Mika Miyazato. A spokeswoman for the LPGA says Hull can join Friday's match on the tee at any hole, but she wasn't sure if Hull would be able to play.

The 20-year-old Hull helped England sweep its two matches against the United States on Thursday on the opening day of the biennial event.

The top two teams in each pool and the winner of wild-card playoff between the third-place teams will advance to singles matches on Sunday.
