Phatlum retains one-stroke lead at Women's British Open

Hall wins Women's British Open for 1st major title

Georgia was born during the 1996 Masters won by English golfer Nick Faldo at Augusta, Ga. She was named in honor of that victory, which came after Faldo overcame a six-stroke deficit to beat Greg Norman in the final round. Hall would be the first Englishwomen to win the Open in 14 years.

But Hall chose the ideal moment to showcase her best golf and took the lead at exactly the right moment, sinking a flawless 20-foot putt on the sixteenth after Phatlum had found the green-side bunker. I'm so happy she win, " the Thai said. She had six birdies in the round.

Hall joined Laura Davies (four), Alison Nicholas and Stupples as women's major winners from England.

"That's my longest streak ever without dropping a shot", said the delighted 22-year-old, who is aiming to become the first British victor since Catriona Matthew at Lytham in 2009.

Pornanong, a 16-time victor on tours in Thailand, Asia and Europe, admits she has been inspired by the Jutanugarn sisters - Moriya and world number one Ariya - who have boosted women's golf in her home country.

Hall had birdies at the third and sixth before her remarkable run without a dropped shot ended at the 13th.

The final day turned out to be a two horse race between the pair at the back of the field, Hall and Pornanong.

The 28-year-old has completed 36 holes without one bogey and is the leader on 10-under par.

Phatlum retained her overnight lead with a 3-under 69, moving to 13-under overall.

Phatlum, the third-round leader, came out strong with four birdies over the first six holes.

Hall took the outright lead for the first time in the tournament after a 20-foot putt for birdie at the 16th hole and went down the last with a three-shot lead after Pornanong, ranked No. 97 and also seeking her first major and LPGA title, missed a two-foot putt to make double-bogey at No. 17.

Phatlum's collapse meant Hall's bogey on the last mattered little, as she matched her best round of the week with a 67 to wrap up the win.

Pornanong Phatlum of Thailand is standing out at the Women's British Open for more than just her pink golf ball. I just had to stay calm and patient.

Hall, who finished third in the British Open last year, added: "Last year was a learning curve for me and I got so much experience in the British Open and the Solheim Cup and I learned that I can play and compete against the best in the world".

Phatlum is trying to become the second Thai female to win a major championship after Ariya Jutanugarn in 2016.

After not qualifying for the ANA Inspiration, Hall made the cut in the following two majors and then finished a brilliant tied-third in the Women's British Open at Kingsbarns before earning another top-10 finish in the Evian Championship. That was all he needed on a day when just about everyone within range was making all the mistakes.
