BOURNEMOUTH-born Georgia Hall was hailed a "superstar" by team-mate Anna Nordqvist for her heroics in Europe's failed bid to wrest the Solheim Cup from America.

Rookie Hall was one of Europe's top performers as Annika Sorenstam's team suffered a heavy defeat in Des Moines, Iowa.

The Wallisdown-raised 21-year-old collected two points and was selected by her captain in both foursomes and fourball matches on Friday and Saturday.

And although she lost her singles on the last hole to 2010 US Women’s Open champion Paula Creamer yesterday, Hall earned the glowing praise of Nordqvist following successive foursome victories with the Swede.

“She certainly played like a superstar for the past two days,” said Nordqvist, who won the PGA Championship in 2009.

“She’s very fearless and she’s a fun character.

"I didn’t know her at all coming into this week, but it’s certainly been a blast playing alongside her. She has a great future in front of her.”

Hall partnered Nordqvist to a 3&1 win over Creamer and Austin Ernst on Friday before beating Stacy Lewis and Gerina Piller 2&1 on Saturday.

She lost 2&1 in the fourballs with Charley Hull to Lewis and Piller on Friday and suffered a 4&2 defeat alongside Catriona Matthew against Cristie Kerr and Lexi Thompson on Saturday.
