• Australia’s Minjee Lee has 65, Mamiko Higa of Japan a 67
It took Georgia Hall just a single shot to deliver a statement of intent at the Women’s British Open. That the course opens with a par three provides such opportunity. Hall’s first tee shot, to within a foot of the hole, was duly backed up. Her Thursday round of 67 – five under par and bogey-free – raises the prospect of only a third British success in this event since it was afforded major status in 2001.
Hall will hope location carries deeper meaning: the last such victory, by Catriona Matthew in 2009, was at Lytham.
