DORSET'S Georgia Hall is targeting her maiden win on the Ladies European Tour – and first place in the order of merit.

Wimborne-based Hall is currently enjoying her best run of form since turning professional three years ago.

She finished tied third at the Ricoh British Open, claimed a share of 10th place at the Evian Championship and made her debut for Europe in the Solheim Cup.

Her exploits have propelled her to third place in the order of merit, behind Sweden's Anna Nordqvist and In-Kyung Kim of Korea.

Hall will look to strengthen her position when she tees off in the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de España Femenino, which starts today at Real Club de Golf Guadalmina in Malaga.

"I would love to win it," said the 21-year-old last night. "I played a practise round yesterday with Suzann (Pettersen) and the golf course is very nice.

"It’s a lot different to last week, with fewer slopes, but the weather is a lot better. I am happy to be playing in good weather.

"It’s not as tight as Evian and you do have a little bit of room out there, but the greens are quite small as well, so approach shots are very important and you have to putt well on this golf course.

"I would love to get my first win this year. That was one of my goals this year and I’ve played really well, so hopefully I can play well and see what happens.

"My goals at the start of this year were to get in the European Solheim Cup team, top 50 in the world and I’m 41st now and to get my first win

"I also wanted to win the order of merit. I think I’m in a good position. The two players above me need to play in five events so, if they don’t play, I will pushed up into first, so hopefully I’ll have a good finish to the year. It’s a nice run now."

Hall has banked more than 300,000 euro in prize money this season.
