Georgia Hall officially became the youngest player to win two consecutive Ladies European Tour order of merit titles, at 22, a year younger than the legendary Dame Laura Davies in 1986.
She was also named as the 2018 Players’ Player of the Year, as voted for by her fellow LET professionals, following a superb season, highlighted by her incredible major victory in the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club.
As the LET order of merit winner, she was presented with a cheque for 20,000 euros by executive chairman Mark Lichtenhein at the end-of-season awards.
“It still hasn’t sunk in yet,” said Hall. “I still feel like the same person and player and enjoy playing in every tournament, just playing golf.
“My dad was caddying that week at Royal Lytham, but I want to thank my caddie, Harry, for caddying for me all year.”

Hall finished T3rd at the Vic Open, T9th in Canberra, T21st at the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open, first in the Ricoh Women’s British Open, T16th in the Evian Championship and T10th in the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de Espana Femenino to crown a tremendously successful year.
Her goal next year is to become the world number one: “I’m world number eight now, so that is my main goal, to become number one. I’m going to work hard in the off season to get off to a great start next year and take the next step.
“I love the tour and coming home, so I’ll try my best to win this award for a third time again next year.”
