Women's British Open champion, England's Georgia Hall has won the LET order of merit for a second consecutive year, entering herself yet again into the hall of fame as the youngest player to ever do so.
The twenty-two-year-old is officially the youngest player to win two consecutive Ladies European Tour order of merit titles, and she managed it just one year younger than the legendary Dame Laura Davies was when she claimed the same title in 1986.
Highlighted by what can only be described as a monumental victory at this year's Ricoh Women's British Open, the awards this weekend topped off what has been an incredible year for Hall, and she collected a cheque for €20,000. As well as collecting the order of merit prize, she was also named as the 2018 Players’ Player of the Year. Voted for by her fellow LET professionals, the award is further testament to her sparkling season and matching attitude.
Hall finished tied 3rd at the Vic Open, 9th in Canberra and 21st at the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open before winning the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club. After that, she tied 16th at the Evian Championship then closed the LET season in the 10th spot at the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de Espana Femenino.
"It still hasn’t sunk in yet," said Hall.
"I still feel like the same person and player and enjoy playing in every tournament, just playing golf".
Now the Bournemouth girl's goal next year is to become the world number one: "I’m world number eight now, so that is my main goal, to become number one. I’m going to work hard in the off-season to get off to a great start next year and take the next step".
Good luck Georgia!
