Charley Hull has decided to 'step away' from the golf scene for a while, considering her struggle with mental health. This great golfer has confirmed that she has been diagnosed with ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).
Hull had problems with concentration, attention, and boredom on the golf course, but she finally found out what caused it. "I know my triggers now because I've been diagnosed with ADHD, quite severely," Hull said. "I can understand now why sometimes I get bored on the golf course.
I feel a lot better now." During the conversation with the psychologist, she learned a lot, and discovered the best way to deal with ADHD. A positive result at the US Open may indicate that things are looking up for her. "It's the way I think.
It's about] keeping my mind busy and being a bit more patient because I can be very impatient. I find it hard to concentrate, but I've found my triggers now, and looking at the views of the ocean last week was pretty good."
In addition to working a lot mentally, Hull also worked on many aspects of her game and tried to improve her skills.
"I've actually been playing well since I won last year but I missed a couple of cuts in my previous events. I just worked on my swing a bit and got my confidence back, and I feel like I'm swinging it well now."
Charley Hull and her next challenge
The next challenge for her will be the Aramco Team Series in the UK.
Hull emphasized that she is looking forward to this challenge, despite the fact that she is tired. "I'm pretty tired, I haven't had much sleep because of the jetlag, but playing at home is always a priority," Hull said. "It's not too far from my house either.
It's a lot of fun and my dad gets to come and watch as well."
