Harder Hall Women's: Charley Hull bests Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn

SEBRING, Fla. (Jan. 8, 2012) -- The 57th Harder Hall Women’s Invitational finished in perfect weather conditions contributing to sub-par golf. Charley Hull from Northants, England shot 69 to hold off Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn, the whiz kids from Bangkok, Thailand. Charley finished at 6 under par, 282 while Ariya finished at 284 and Moriya followed at 285. It was truly an international field with Perrine Delacour from France coming in fourth.

Other countries represented included Canada, Scotland, Mexico and Columbia. This strong field enjoyed a much improved Harder Hall Country Club, with new enlarged greens and redone bunkers.

The newly crowned Champion Charley Hull plans to accept an invitation from the LPGA and Symetra Tour to the 2012 Florida’s Natural Charity Classic, March 19 -25 at the Lake Region Yacht and Country Club in Winter Haven, Florida.

The Ben Roman Division Champion was Denise Callahan from Canton, Ohio. The Forever Forty-Nine prize was claimed by Martha Leach of Hebron, Kentucky.

ABOUT THE Harder Hall Invitational

The Harder Hall Women’s Invitational was first played in 1956 in Sebring, Florida. Harder Hall was a grand old hotel with a wonderful Dick Wilson golf course. The Tournament was started by Harder Hall Head Professional Ben Roman to draw women amateur golfers to Sebring. The hotel was closed in the 1980s but the Tournament has continued and thrived. 

Harder Hall is a four-day no cut stroke play Tournament for women amateurs.  It draws an international field and has two Divisions. The Championship Division handicaps are capped at 16.4 and the Ben Roman Division includes handicaps from 7.0 to 24.4. It is the first of four "Orange Blossom" Florida winter tournaments.
