Georgia Hall is playing a homecoming of sorts at the Women’s British Open. She turned pro after competing in the 2014 event at Royal Birkdale, where she acquitted herself quite nicely as an 18-year old amateur.
Hall’s been strengthening and refining her game now for three years and she’s looking ready to jump into the thick of the competition. She tops both the LET Order of Merit and Solheim Cup points, and that’s without a win on her résumé!
Still, she’s getting close and eventually she’ll close the deal. As Hall observed following her Women’s British Open debut in 2014,
". . . you get more experience every time you play. You learn how to handle the pressure more . . ."
Making her 4th British Open start, Hall is settled in and ready. Her T9 last week at Dundonald isn’t her best finish this season, but it was certainly a respectable one.
She recorded a T3 at the World Ladies Championship in March. But the 21-year old is turning heads and playing a smart game. I look for Hall, who’s already tested herself at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and the U.S. Women’s Open, to measure up nicely against the field this week. Kingsbarns is her final tune-up before the Solheim Cup and Hall’s in the unique position of Solheim Cup points leader for the Europeans.
