Charley Hull and Justin Rose to play in mixed team event the Grant Thornton Invitational

Charley Hull helped Europe win the 2023 Solheim Cup and Justin Rose was part of the continent’s Ryder Cup victory a week later

English pair Charley Hull and Justin Rose will team up in the Grant Thornton Invitational, a mixed team event being staged by the PGA Tour and LPGA Tour.

It will be the first time the circuits have held a mixed event since 1999.

Staged over three rounds from 8-10 December for a shared $4m (£3.5m) purse, the event will feature 16 mixed pairs and be played in Naples, Florida.

England’s Melissa Reid and Ireland’s Leona Maguire will also play – as will 2023’s four women’s major champions.

Reid will team up with Russell Henley while his fellow American Lucas Glover will partner Maguire.

The 32-strong field includes 11 major champions and, like Hull and Rose, Swedish pair Madelene Sagstrom and Ludvig Aberg were each on the winning European teams at the Solheim Cup and Ryder Cup this autumn.

The last mixed team event held by the PGA Tour and LPGA was the 1999 JC Penney Classic.
