England number one Charley Hull is targeting victory at her home course as the Women's British Open comes to Woburn on Thursday.

The competition is the fourth of five majors in women's golf this year, and the last before the Rio Olympics.

Hull, 20, from Kettering, is a member at Woburn, which is hosting the event for the first time in 17 years.

"It's going to be special. Every tournament I'm in, I'm trying to win it, so that's my main goal," she said.

The Bedfordshire course hosted the Women's British Open nine times between 1984 and 1999, but always on the Duke's course - the Marquess' course will be played for the first time in a major this year.

Hull's best finish in the competition came in 2014, when she tied for 12th at Royal Birkdale. She finished second in the ANA Inspiration in April.

"It would be great to win the British Open, especially at your home golf course," she said.

"There's going to be a lot of pressure on me and a lot of focus, so I'm not going to be thinking about it too much."

Defending champion Inbee Park will not be at Woburn because of a thumb injury, but world number one Lydia Ko will compete.

The 19-year-old New Zealander is looking to maintain her impressive record in majors this year after winning the ANA Inspiration and coming second and third in the Women's PGA Championship and US Women's Open respectively.
