England's Georgia Hall claimed it felt "too good to be true" after producing a brilliant final round to win her first major title in the Ricoh Women's British Open at Royal Lytham.

On the 13th hole, Hall made a 10-feet birdie to move to 16-under and therefore a share of the lead.

Hall also fought back tears at the presentation ceremony as she dedicated the victory to her grandfather, saying: "There's someone very special at home that's going through a bad time so this is for you Grandad".

England's Georgia Hall with her father Wayne on the bag made history on Sunday.

Hall was always chasing but was given hope when Phatlum bogeyed No. 8 to reduce her lead to one shot.

Victory meant the 2013 British ladies' amateur champion, who now spends most of her time playing in America on the LPGA Tour, emulated compatriot Karen Stupples (2004) and Scot Catriona Matthew (2009), the other two British winners since this event became a major.

At the age of 22, Hall - who finished tied for third at last year's Open - managed to record a first major title win and become just the fourth English victor of the tournament.

However, a double bogey from Phatlum on the 17th sent Hall three clear, giving her plenty of breathing space to complete a famous victory, finishing on 17-under for the tournament.

Hall shot a 5-under-par 67 in the final round to finish at 17-under 271 while becoming the fourth-youngest victor of the Women's British Open.

Jurgen Klopp welcomes Loris Karius' warm reception at Anfield: 'I loved it'
Liverpool will be hoping to take their pre-season form into their Premier League campaign when West Ham come to town this weekend. The visitors rarely threatened but pulled a goal back through Andrea Belotti's powerful close-range header.


So Yeon Ryu finished third but could have been a contender for the title had it not been for her early failings.

"I played in the Solheim Cup (Europe v the USA) and loved it".

The resulting bogey saw the 28-year-old's lead cut to a single shot and Hall kept it that way thanks to a superb par save on the ninth after finding a greenside bunker with her tee shot. "I'm not allowed to show any emotion because if I show I'm happy that's not right", dad Wayne said.

"I was so confident coming into this event after a year ago".

"I think I will be a bit more relaxed because I've been there before but it won't be easy because it's the British Open". I just had to stay calm.

PGA - Justin Thomas took all the drama out of the final World Golf Championship at Firestone, never letting anyone closer than two shots and closing with a 1-under 69 to win the Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, for his third title this season.

And no countrywomen has ever accomplished the biggest feat in her sport at such a young age - with one of the great final rounds by any European golfer, to boot. "I did not hit the ball as well today but we had so much control and I had a very clean card at the end".

Also the 2014 and 2015 victor at TPC Twin Cities, the 57-year-old Perry matched Hale Irwin's tournament record of three victories in the final edition of the event that started in 1993 at Bunker Hills.
