The Brit golfer Georgia Hall clinches a home victory and her first major win at the Women's British Open on Sunday, August 5, 2018, in Lytham St. Annes, England.
Georgia won the LPGA Ricoh Women's British Open after lining up a birdie on the 13th hole in the final round of the competition.
The win was the first significant win of Georgia Hall as she had never previously felt what victory is on the Ladies European Tour on the LPGA Tour. But, things have gotten real from here after she carded six birdies to win the game.

Georgia started her game with a birdie at Par 3 and later got six birdies during the 67th round, final round which gave her the two-shot lead against Pornanong Phatlum.
The game started with Phatlum taking a one-shot lead over Hall. She also had a great start as she had put four birdies in the first six holes. During the earlier games, Georgia also had three birdies under her name scoring in the first, fourth, and sixth sections.
On the eighth hole, Phatlum couldn't score at par which led to a bogey. This helped Hall to move forward, and with her birdie on the 13th hole, she rose to the top of the game.
Hall only had her bogey for the game on the 18th hole while Phatlum errored on her 17th when she failed to score on par. The 17th hole was an unlucky one for Phatlum as she had a double bogey on the hole and this pushed her three points behind Hall.

The new winner of the Women's British Open couldn't believe her win. During a post-match interview, she told the reporters that it was too good to be true. It had been her goal since she was nine.
This six-footer's for the British Open' and to actually have that - and luckily it was just a tap-in - I'm over the moon. I'm so happy.
After winning this game, the 22 years' from the Bournemouth city has become the fifth British winner of a major. She has also become the only third home winner of this event since the event rose to fame in 2001.
