Georgia Hall is playing her 3rd year on the Ladies European Tour and while she’s still on the hunt for her first pro victory she currently ranks 3rd on the LET Order of Merit and leads in LET Solheim Cup points.

In terms of match play experience, Hall has represented Europe on the Curtis Cup and Junior Solheim Cup teams as an amateur and also played on Dame Laura Davies’ 2016 Team Europe at The Queens.

The 21-year old Englishwoman has recorded three top-5 finishes at LET events this season and has also played in the U.S. Women’s Open.

Hall’s Solheim Cup American opponents got a good look at her game at the Ricoh Women’s British Open where she and Lexi Thompson shared the early lead. Thompson dropped back but Hall, with her long, powerful swing and precise ball-striking, kept herself in contention to the end, skillfully navigating both the tricky Kingsbarns links and the testing Scottish weather.

Hall’s well-rounded game doesn’t show any glaring weaknesses and her steady consistency will prove an asset to Team Europe at Des Moines.

Look for Captain Sörenstam to pair Hall, Florentyna Parker, Emily Pedersen, and Madelene Sagstrom, Europe’s other rookies, with the team’s more experienced veterans for the Friday foursomes/fourballs matches.
