GEORGIA Hall – tomorrow due to tackle the £3.76million US Women’s Open – admitted she favoured “rainy Wimborne” to the glamorous settings of the LPGA Tour.

The 22-year-old is in her debut season on the richest circuit in women’s golf and has been commuting across the Atlantic from her base in Dorset.

Tuesday’s practice rounds at Shoal Creek Golf and Country Club in Alabama were cancelled due to heavy rain brought on by Storm Alberto.

But wet weather could make the former Canford Kid feel more at home, a place she holds close to her heart.

Hall told the Daily Echo: “I prefer rainy Wimborne! When the weather is really good in America, sometimes it’s nice to come home to weather which is not as good.

"It’s nice to change it up because the heat does get to you. I do love coming home. Just to be around a familiar town when you are away so much is very important.

“You miss things like your own bed or your own place, driving your own car and seeing people you don’t get to see when you are away.

“Maybe in future years it might be better to move nearer to London because of the airports and to make travel a bit easier, especially if I am going to live in England.

“The amount of travelling is quite tiring and the jet lag isn’t great but I do love coming home and that’s why I haven’t got a place out there.

“If I were to live in America, there would be a lot of changes.”

Hall’s hectic schedule has seen her compete in tournaments in America, Australia, Thailand and Singapore in the past four months.

Winner of last year’s Ladies' European Tour order of merit, the former Oakmead College pupil has endured an up and down campaign.

She missed the cut in four of her past six events but finished in a tie for 24th in last week’s Volvik Championship.

“I have had some good results and not so good results. I am learning a lot this year,” added the world number 36.

“I am enjoying it a lot and the golf courses are great. They are tough at times as well.

“As long as I get some good results, I am happy and I will try to achieve my goals.

“On the European Tour last year, I played in 10 events. Now I am going to play a lot more and it’s a case of getting used to that on different types of golf courses.”

Hall is set to begin her first round at 7.26pm UK time. She will start on the 10th hole alongside Americans Austin Ernst and Ally McDonald.
