13.12.2017 — Berenberg brand ambassador Georgia Hall wins the Ladies European Tour
Georgia Hall had reason to celebrate after collecting both the Ladies European Tour’s Order of Merit and the Player of the Year Award. The 21-year-old from Dorset (UK) wrapped up the Order of Merit with earnings of €368,934.60 from 10 tournaments.
Hall recorded seven top 10s on the Ladies European Tour in 2017, two of those in European Major Championships. Her season started strongly with a tie for third in the World Ladies Championship in China and a tie for fourth in the Lalla Meryem Cup in Morocco. She posted a tie for ninth in the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open and then shared third place in the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Kingsbarns Golf Links, marking her out as one of Europe’s rising stars. She then tied for tenth place in the fifth Major, the Evian Championship in France, before posting a fourth-place finish in the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de España Femenino and second in the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open in Abu Dhabi. She said: “I’m so happy to have played so great this year. Winning the Order of Merit is one of the biggest moments in my career.” Another highlight in 2017 was her participation in the Solheim Cup, a competition pitting the best female players from the United States against the best female players from Europe.
