It's the first Major of the year and England's Georgia Hall is on the hunt for her second Major on the back of some excellent form at the start of the 2023 season

We’re not wanting to put the expectation of a Major win on Georgia Hall’s shoulders but she oozed confidence in her press conference on Tuesday ahead of the first women’s Major of the year.

Asked about her confidence heading into The Chevron Championship, Hall said:

“It obviously gives me a lot of confidence. I've been in contention most of the weeks that I've played in an event [this year], so really comfortable with being in that position.

“I think that every golf course every week is very different, and this one the greens are especially quite tricky, so I think I can rely on my short game this week, but hopefully I can be in that final group again come Sunday.”

The Englishwoman then went on to say that at this point in time, she doesn’t feel like she has any weaknesses in her game and that it will be her strong mentality which will be key to her playing well this week.

Although she is yet to get a win under her belt this year, Hall can draw strength from the fact that she has shot low rounds on Sundays and kept herself in contention.

“I think I have a lot of low rounds in me and hopefully they can come out this week.”

The 27-year-old is already a Major champion, winning the AIG Women’s Open in 2018, so she knows what it feels like to deliver her best golf at the right moment.

But this week, they’re facing a new course as the Major has moved from Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California to The Club at Carlton Woods in Texas, some 1,500 miles further east.

Asked about the new course, Hall said:

“I think it's a little bit longer than Palm Springs. Palm Springs was a little bit more pristine in the way it looks, but I would say this is a better golf course.

“The greens are a little bit harder, they are very grainy, which is going to be quite tough to read the putts. Obviously a great closing hole, very similar to the one we've had previously. I don't know if anyone is going to jump in that lake, but we'll see!”

Straight in from the LOTTE Championship in Hawaii where she was in contention heading into the final day where she finished in a tie for sixth place.

I've learnt since being on Tour that I need to play in the event before a Major. I feel a lot more comfortable.”

Sitting at the top of the LPGA Money List and Race to CME Globe standings, the number 10 player in the world has to be on many people’s minds this week.
