England's Georgia Hall will turn pro in April next year on her 18th birthday. This is a childhood dream for the Dorset teenager and one that she has has been practising for since the age of seven.

After a terrific season as an amateur player, Georgia Hall, a member of Remedy Oak Golf Club in Dorset, has made the decision to join the professional ranks when she turns 18-years-old next April.

Earlier this year Hall made history as the first ever player to hold the British girls' and ladies's titles at the same time. She won the 2013 British amateur championship at Machynys Peninsula in South Wales - with the help of her first-ever hole-in-one.

The Bournemouth golfer is currently 10th in the world rankings and third in Europe, she also shared the silver medal with Lydia Ko after finishing tied as leading amateur at the Ricoh Women's British Open at St Andrews, and was chosen as Team GB's flag bearer for the 2013 Australian Youth Olympic Festival and went on to win two gold medals.

Hall represented Europe in the 2013 Junior Solheim Cup against America in Colorado and ended this season on a high by finishing as England's leading points scorer in the Home Internationals in Scotland.
