GEORGIA Hall will today begin her final preparations for the Women's British Open when she takes to the fairways at the Ladies' Scottish Open.

Wimborne-based Hall will line up in a tough field at Dundonald Links – a course she favours – in a tournament which carries plenty of weight in its own right.

The event is set to attract the world's best including world number one So Yeon Ryu of South Korea, with a prize fund of £1.25million up for grabs.

Hall will hope to put in a positive performance ahead of the Kingsbarns Links-hosted British Open, which she considers the most important tournament of the year.

As an amateur, the 21-year-old shared the silver medal with Lydia Ko in 2013 and finished 29th the following year.

However, since turning professional, former Canford Kid Hall has not made the cut in two attempts.

After this year's final round, the European team for August's Solheim Cup in Iowa will be named by captain Annika Sorenstam.

Hall currently leads the Ladies' European Tour Solheim Cup rankings, with the top four guaranteed selection.

The next top four players from the world rankings also earn a place in the team due to face the United States at Des Moines Golf & Country Club.
