England's Charley Hull has been handed a star-studded grouping alongside world No 1 Nelly Korda and two-time major champion Lydia Ko for the first two rounds of the AIG Women’s Open.

Hull, chasing a maiden major title this week at Walton Heath and looking to complete a season of first-time major winners, has been handed an early-late draw as she begins at 8.20am on Thursday.

The 27-year-old will tee off alongside Korda, looking to enjoy more success in England after winning the Aramco Team Series event in London last month, while Ko will be searching for a return to form as he she aims to end her seven-year major drought.
