English golf received a significant boost today when their rising star Georgia Hall won the Ricoh Women's British Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes after a titanic final day battle with Thailand's Pornanong Phatlum.
It started from the outset, with Hall instantly applying pressure thanks to a fine clutch putt to make birdie at the first and take a share of the lead.

★ Now her Cinderella story is set to inspire other young sportspeople wanting to get a taste of world-class action. Hall nailed a 20-foot eagle putt on the final hole to spark wild celebrations, and they went on to humiliate South Africa's George Coetzee and Haydn Porteous 4-1.
