Royal Lytham & St Annes

The 2018 Ricoh Women's British Open

At the age of just 22, Georgia Hall was the youngest British golfer to win a major since Willie Anderson, who had emigrated from North Berwick to win the US Open in 1901. Following Tom Lehman’s advice she was only in one fairway bunker all week and six green-side ones. In all six instances she got up and down in two, echoing the similar experiences of Tony Jacklin in 1969 and Seve Ballesteros in 1979. The smoothness of her putting stroke was another impressive strength of her game. Once again Royal Lytham showed itself to be the ideal arena for a championship, with the largest crowds ever for a Women’s British Open being treated to golf of the highest calibre played over a course superbly presented by players who were a credit to themselves and the game. And for the young English Georgia Hall to win - now that was a fairy tale!
