Clean sweep for England at UL International

Victory for Melissa Reid and Charley Hull

Clean sweep for England at UL InternationalEngland registered a clean sweep against Thailand in Saturday's fourballs at the UL International Crown to finish top of their pool.

Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Holly Clyburn recorded a 7&5 victory over Pornanong Phatlum and Porani Chutichai, whilst Melissa Reid and Charley Hull beat Ariya Jutanugarn and Moriya Jutanugarn 3&1.

Hull had missed play on Friday because of asthma and a high fever, and Melissa Reid had to go it alone.

20-year-old Hull struggled to breathe for much of Thursday night and got some oxygen and an IV to help her recover. She watched the back nine of Reid's heroic effort playing by herself in a close loss to Japan, and felt "fresh as a daisy" when she showed up on the first tee for Saturday’s session.

After a slow start, Hull and Reid won five straight holes to go from two down to three up. Hull fired in three straight birdies before she eagled the par-5 8th. Reid then had a birdie on No. 9.

Victory sees England go through to today’s concluding singles in Illinois.

The country with the highest point total from the four days of competition will win the title of the best golf nation in the world once the 10 singles matches have finished.
