Women’s British Open champion Georgia Hall is aiming to keep things simple as she prepares to play back-to-back majors in just over a week. Hall, 23, will start her Evian Championship campaign in France on Thursday before mounting her British Open title defence at Woburn next week. She admits she played in too many events at the start of the year but feels refreshed after a short break. It’s a good learning curve for me, said the world number 30.
I made sure that I had a good two weeks off to prepare before this three-week stretch. I’ve been working on my swing and also on my chipping, to get a bit more consistency. I’ve been playing a lot of golf and I think that’s important, not just hitting balls on the range. Hall won the Women’s British Open – her first major title – at Royal Lytham last August, becoming only the third home winner since the event became a major championship in 2001.
But she admits she has had to take her game back to basics in recent weeks as she looks to rediscover her form having made just eight cuts from 13 starts earlier in the year. My dad has been helping me clear my mind and keep things simple, not trying to complicate me, my swing or me as a golfer; just go out and be Georgia, she added. —VoM
