Lydia Ko plays from a deep pot bunker during day two of women's British Open

England's Georgia Hall, 22, showed grit and a steely nerve to win the Women's British Open with a superb final round of five-under 67 at Royal Lytham and St Annes yesterday morning (Singapore time).

Pornanong, the leader after the second and third rounds, started the day a shot ahead of Hall, opened her lead to two strokes after three straight birdies from No. 4, but was caught by her playing partner at No. 13 when Hall birdied.

At the age of 22, Hall - who finished tied for third at last year's Open - managed to record a first major title win and become just the fourth English victor of the tournament.

"This is my first time at Lytham and I've played really well, managed to stay out of trouble and my putting was very good". Last year's top-5 finisher became the 42nd Women's British Open champion. I'm so happy she win, " the Thai said.

But Hall's most notable performance of previous year was on her full Solheim Cup debut, winning two matches alongside Anna Nordqvist and taking the experienced Paul Creamer to the final hole of their hard-fought singles clash on the final day.

Gates admits he cheated on wife at Manafort trial
Gates' earlier testimony on Tuesday, meanwhile, centered on how Ukrainian businessmen paid Manafort for his consultancy work. Downing also asked Gates if he had submitted personal expenses to President Donald Trump's inaugural committee.

Phatlum found trouble at the 17th and missed a short putt for bogey to give Hall a three-stroke lead with one hole play.

However, an errant drive on the eighth led to a bogey for the 28-year-old and Hall moved into a share of the lead thanks to a birdie from 10 feet on the 13th.

Australia's Lee looked set to retain her overnight lead but a double-bogey - she went from one greenside bunker to another - at the 16th and a bogey at the 17th left her having to settle for a 70 and a nine-under total.

She said: "I saw so many little girls come out, three or four-year-olds just wanting a picture with me".

In 2017, Hall returned to the Women's British Open to finish in tied-third, a high she matched in the World Ladies Championship.

Sunday, Georgia Hall and Pornanong Phatlum were locked in a dramatic back and forth that felt more like match play than the final round of the Ricoh Women's British Open.

Hull tapped in for a bogey - her first of the day - at the last hole to clinch a two-shot victory over Pornanong.

"I can't believe how many of you fans came out to support me, I am so grateful". "I feel really good going into the weekend".

So Yeon Ryu finished third but could have been a contender for the title had it not been for her early failings.

That same year, Hall represented Team GB at the 2013 Youth Olympic Festival where she won two golds and was part of the European team at the Junior Solheim Cup.
