European number one Georgia Hall is one of Britain's most promising young golfers, with a superb treble of big wins under her belt at the age of just 16.

In May, Hall won the Critchley Salver at Sunningdale to add to previous prestigious victories in the Hampshire Rose and Roehampton Gold Cup tournaments.

Hall, also ranked fourth in the world, narrowly missed out on a place in the Great Britain & Ireland Curtis Cup team and made it to the semi-finals of the Ladies' British Amateur Championship.
