Hall and Hull made the draw alongside Lucas Bjerregaard, who won the inaugural event for Team Denmark with Thorbjørn Olesen, for the group stage of the second edition of GolfSixes, which takes place from May 5-6.
The two England teams were drawn in Group D with Sweden and South Africa.

Team Denmark will take on Thailand, the United States of America and the European Women’s team of Suzann Pettersen and Mel Reid.
The final Wildcard team, Ireland, were drawn against France, Italy and Scotland in Group C.
The 16 teams will go head-to-head across two days of fast-paced action for a prize fund of €1million – tickets are available here.
Teams will play each other in their groups once on Saturday May 5, with the top two teams from each group going through to Sunday’s knock-out stage.
Three points will be awarded for a win, and one for a draw.
If teams are level on points, the ‘Holes Won’ differential will be used to settle ties within a group. If this method does not resolve the tie, it will be the result of the match between the tied countries. If this still does not resolve the tie, it will be decided by a one-hole play-off.
