Professional golfer Charley Hull is in the Game Changers studio as she talks about her career and the Solehim Cup success.

Young golfer Charley Hull told Game Changers her Dad and Tiger Woods have been her inspiration.

Charley who, aged just 17, has already won golf's Solheim Cup with Team Europe, told Di and Darren she first picked up a golf club as a toddler but it ended up getting her in a bit of trouble...

"I first picked up a golf club when I was about two or three. My next door neighbour played and I went along with it and my Dad got me in to the game.

"My Dad and I were in the garden and he was practising with a seven iron and he told me not hit the ball while he had a cup of tea. He turned around, I picked up his seven iron and hit the ball over the bungalow next door and it went flying over the house. He picked me up, threw me over his shoulder, took me inside and locked the door!"

Charley also answered questions from the Game Changers studio audience.

CHARLEY SAID: One in America that's called The Concession Golf Club it's designed by Tony Jacklin and Jack Nicklaus and it's fantastic.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE GOLF CLUB?

CHARLEY SAID: My four iron. I play with blades and it's a pretty hard club to hit and I love it.

WHAT DID PLAYING IN THE SOLHEIM CUP FEEL LIKE?

CHARLEY SAID: It's almost like a football match on the first tee because everyone is shouting and screaming. It was a great atmosphere and a great week.

WHO'S YOUR INSPIRATION?

CHARLEY SAID: My Dad definitely when I was younger but I've always looked up to Tiger Woods as well.

WHAT'S YOUR MAIN AMBITION?
