DORSET sensation Georgia Hall has recruited a new caddie to help her take the Ladies' European Tour by storm – boyfriend Harry Tyrrell.

The former Canford Kid is tomorrow due to step up her bid to top the order of merit when she tees it up at the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies' Open in Abu Dhabi (3.35am UK time).

And Wimborne-based Hall will be hoping the presence of Tyrrell will push her on to a seventh top-10 finish in nine LET tournaments this year.

Tyrrell, also a professional, recently quit his job at Hindhead Golf Club in Surrey to caddie for the remainder of the season, as well as pursuing his playing ambitions on the EuroPro Tour.

The pair met through Instagram during the week of the Ladies' Scottish Open in July, just before Hall qualified for Solheim Cup duty with Europe.

Hall told the LET: “He followed me on Instagram and then, when we were in Scotland and the weather was really bad, he was playing golf somewhere and complaining about the weather, so I said ‘are you joking? The weather is so much worse here’.

"We started chatting from there and met properly after the British Open and since then he hasn’t stopped texting me."

Tyrrell is looking forward to his first caddying experience and says his goal is to defeat Hall on the fairways, as he has played against her seven or eight times and only come close once.

“It’s soul-destroying playing against her, because I can never win," joked Tyrrell, who like Hall is 21 years old.

“If I beat Georgia at golf, the world will know about it!”

Hall added: “He won’t!”

A former pupil at Oakmead College, Hall began her week in memorable style when she smashed a monster 579-yard drive down the drag strip at Yas Marina Circuit, believed to be the world’s longest drive by a female golfer.

And the world number 42, who is seeking her third professional triumph, wants to stay in the limelight with another record performance at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club.

Hall finished runner-up in the tournament last year, three strokes behind Beth Allen, after shooting a women’s course record of 64 in the second round, which she equalled in Tuesday’s pro-am.

“This tournament brings back a lot of good memories having had my best result on tour here last year,” said Hall.

“Abu Dhabi was the first place I played golf abroad as a 12-year-old, so it’s a special place. The Gary Player design is amazing and suits my game. I’m always happy to come back here.”

Hall's playing partners for the first two rounds are Denmark's Emily Kristine Pedersen and Australia's Rebecca Artis.

She is set to tee it up for Thursday's second round at 8.05am UK time.
