Dorset’s Georgia Hall has completed an impressive double by winning the England Golf girls’ order of merit for 2012, sponsored by the golf tour operator, Lorrin Golf.

She finished the race to the England Golf girls’ title ahead of Emily Taylor – who won the women’s order of merit – and of Curtis Cup player Bronte Law.
“I am really happy, very, very pleased,” said Georgia, who is the British girls’ champion. “Winning something like this underlines your consistency over the year and consistency is what I aim for.”
She added, as she thanked sponsors Lorrin Golf: “This finishes off the season on a high. Now it’s back to practicing as much as I can in the winter to come back next year and hopefully have an even better season.”
David Kelly, Managing Director of Lorrin Golf commented, “Lorrin Golf would like to congratulate Georgia Hall on her superb play throughout 2012. As winner of the girls order of merit we wish Georgia all the very best for her new challenges in 2013”.
Georgia’s highlights of 2012 were winning the British girls’ title at Tenby and becoming Europe’s number one – a reflection of her fourth place in the women’s world amateur rankings.
During the season she was also runner-up in the English women’s amateur and a semi-finalist in the British women’s amateur and in the French lady junior championships. She was co-leader in qualifying at the European girls’ team championship with a 36-hole score of 11-under par.
Georgia won the Critchley Salver, the Hampshire Rose and the Roehampton Gold Cup. She also helped England win the 2012 women’s and girls’ Home Internationals and represented England in the women’s World Amateur Team Championship.
