DORSET’S Georgia Hall endured an up and down opening round at the HSBC Women's World Championship in Singapore.

The world number 30 signed for a one-over-par 73 on the Tanjong Course at Sentosa Golf Club, leaving her tied for 41st.

On a day where 27 players managed to break par, Hall began her tournament in tidy fashion.

Starting her round on the 10th, the Solheim Cup star picked up birdies on the 11th and 13th.

But a double-bogey seven at the par-five 16th proved a big body blow as the former Canford Kid completed her first nine level.

Despite picking up a shot at the third hole, back-to-back bogeys at four and five meant Hall slipped over par for the first time.

And although she picked up a shot at the eighth, a bogey at her final hole meant the ex-Oakmead College pupil finished one over.

Hall is due to begin her second round, again off the 10th tee, at 12.23am UK time, alongside Amy Yang and Pornanong Phatlum.

Early pacesetter Jennifer Song opened up with a bogey-free 65 at the £1.09million event.
