GEORGIA Hall is set to launch her challenge to win a second Vic Open in Australia.

The Wimborne-based star won her maiden professional title at the event in 2016 when it was part of the Australian Ladies Professional Golf Tour (ALPG).

This year's tournament is co-sanctioned between the ALPG and LPGA Tour, after two years with the Ladies’ European Tour.

Reigning Women’s British Open champion Hall is set to be one of just four players from the world top 50 teeing off for the £840,000 purse, at 13th Beach Golf Links in Barwon Heads.

The event sees a men's and women's competition run on the course at the same time, with equal prize money.

Hall is set to begin her opening round at 8.50pm tomorrow UK time.

The 22-year-old last month started the season with a ninth-place finish at the Tournament of Champions in Florida.
