Georgia Hall wins Women's British Open for first major title

She was at 13 under overall, one stroke ahead of playing partner Georgina Hall of England, whose scrambling through an erratic round kept her in contention also for a first major title. She had four birdies and a bogey in the round. Hall opened with birdie, and by the time she made a 20-footer at the 16th, she had six on the day.

It was fitting that Wayne, a former two-handicapper himself, was on the bag to experience the biggest moment of his daughter's career.

"You know there are lots of little boys and girls watching the final round on TV and they've seen a young girl, at the top of her game, winning something quite sensational".

Twenty-two years later, Hall is the pride of English golf, just as Faldo was.

DORSET star Georgia Hall started by competing for Snickers bars at Canford Magna - now she has joined the most prestigious list of winners in golfing history.

Hall played safe in three-putting from distance to finish on 17-under 271. "To get six birdies in the final round of a major is not bad".

Hall became the first English Women's British Open victor since Karen Stupples in 2004.

Brooke Henderson (74) of Smiths Falls, Ont., tied for 11th at 6 under par.

Roared on under blue skies by the large gallery desperate for a home victor, the 39th-ranked Hall started the day a shot behind Pornanong, who led after the second and third rounds.

Hall fired birdies on Nos.

It put the two-time major victor tied for eighth at five-under par overall, with leader Pornanong Phatlum of Thailand at 10-under.

The 22-year-old Wimborne-based professional reflected on her dreams growing up, pretending to hole putts for the Women's British Open.

"I always joked that a major would be my first win", Hall said. "She was fantastic. She struggled in the third round and obviously decided overnight that she never wanted to play like that again when in this position".

"It is too good to be true", Hall said. I am so happy.

"I told myself just to stay calm the whole way and not think about anything. It was very close up to the last two holes and I holed all the putts today".

So Yeon Ryu (70 on Sunday) finished third, four shots back of Hall.
