Solheim Cup sensation Charley Hull cancelled plans to attend the second stage of LPGA Qualifying School and will instead rely on sponsor invitations to fill out her touring schedule.

“We applied for (Q-School) pre-Solheim Cup, never thinking the [sponsor] invitation route would get her enough starts,” Hull’s manager Joe McQuade wrote in an email to GolfChannel.com. “Post-Solheim, we sat down and had a good think about things and decided that as Charley is so young, she wouldn’t want to be in the States and away from home for her entire schedule, and that her exposure through the Solheim will hopefully have given her sufficient publicity to attract the maximum six invitations. These, together with competitions such as the U.S. Open, etc., that she can qualify for, will give her a nice balance between USA and European events. Whilst I know Charley is drawn to the States, she still wants to give support to the European (t)our, which is where her professional career began.”

The 17-year-old Hull can earn her LPGA Tour card by winning a Tour event or finishing in the Top 40 on the money list by the end of the 2014 season.

In August, Hull helped Europe upset the U.S. at the Colorado Golf Club in Denver to keep the Solheim Cup, defeating established superstar Paula Creamer 5 and 4 in their singles match and then (now famously) asking for her autograph.
