Charley Hull is leading by one stroke after a very chilly Round 1 of the Volunteers Of America Classic in Texas.

Charley Hull is doing us proud over in America this week.

Proving that us Brits are made of hardy stuff, she didn't let the near freezing temperatures and icey wind put her off her game.

She carded a 3-under 68 after 18 holes and holds a one-stroke lead heading into the second round of the LPGA event at the Old American Golf Club near Dallas, Texas.

Her round included six birdies, four of which were recorded between holes two and seven.

Proving the difficulty of the conditions, not a single eagle was made all day. But there were however, 400 bogies.

Even Charley got a bogey on her penultimate hole and she admitted she was flagging by the end.

"I struggled swinging the last two holes, I just got so cold. Along that lake you just get like freezing,” she said.

"I think I'm going to go to the supermarket and get a thick, woolly coat."

Her 68 is a career best 18-hole score for the VOA Classic and it marks the first time she has secured the 18-hole lead in an LPGA event since the 2016 Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic, where she finished T8.

“I felt like I was hitting it really well. Actually, I didn't hit a green, but I was always just like a club short or something or half a club short and I was still putting just off the green, but I felt like I was hitting it pretty well and then just made some birdies coming in,” she continued.

Meanwhile, Americans Jennifer Kupcho and Jessica Korda and Thailand’s Pornanong Phatlum are all T2.

Warmer conditions are predicted for today, but hopefully Charley will still be able to maintain her lead!
