By Tony Jimenez LONDON (Reuters) – Charley Hull has mixed feelings about her second-place finish at the first women’s major championship of 2016, describing it as a “missed opportunity” but also viewing her performance as a sizeable confidence boost. The golden girl of British golf burst on to the stage in 2013 when, as the youngest player in the history of the Solheim Cup, the then 17-year-old won two of her three matches to inspire Europe to their first victory on U.S. soil. Hull’s game has continued to progress since then and she came close to landing her first major earlier this month, ending in a share of second place, one stroke behind New Zealander Lydia Ko, in the ANA Inspiration at Mission Hills, California.
