Hull, Hall and Korda set for Centurion showdown – Golf News

By admin May31,2024

The UK leg of the Ladies European Tour’s Aramco Team Series, which is being held at Centurion Club from July 3-5, is shaping up as a preview for the Paris Olympics, with Great Britain’s Charley Hull and Georgia Hall set to tee it up in the high-class field which includes World No1 Nelly Korda.

The English duo are sure to be a hit with the home crowds, and with further announcements set to follow on a strong field, both are looking to build on fantastic 2023 outings at the tournament.

Last year, Hull came up just short to the all-conquering world no.1 Nelly Korda in the individual competition, while Hall was able to captain her team to victory in extremely difficult conditions, edging out Hull’s team by just one stroke.

Now England’s dynamic duo are aiming to secure their places representing Great Britain at the 2024 Paris Olympics and become the first to win a medal for Team GB in a women’s golf event.

The golf at the 2024 Paris Olympics, where Korda is set to defend her gold medal from Tokyo 2020, kicks off a little over a month after the Aramco Team Series – London event, and the ‘Major-like’ event at Centurion will provide the pair the perfect opportunity to prepare themselves in their quest for medals.

Hull has recently achieved a career-high world ranking of seventh following her impressive runner-up finish at the Aramco Team Series in Tampa in March.

Reflecting on her preparations for the summer, Hull commented: “At the start of the season I sat down and thought about how I wanted this year to pan out. I knew that there would be an important summer of golf ahead with the Olympic Games, Solheim Cup and chasing down my first Major title.

Centurion Club is always in immaculate condition

“I’m in the best place I’ve ever been in my career, mentally and physically, so to have the Aramco Team Series at home is the best way to open the intense summer ahead.

Playing in a field with some of the players I’ll face in Paris, and at a tournament like this that has that Major-like feel, will be a great dress rehearsal for me to aim for that gold medal.”

Excited about the prospect of returning to London, Hall said: “The Aramco Team Series in London will be my first appearance in the event this year and I’m buzzing to get back into playing with a team which will hopefully be a great transition to the Solheim Cup in September.

“Competing against Charley as a team captain again will add an extra layer of excitement, especially with friends and family cheering us on. I’ve played my fair share of Majors and outside of those, the Aramco Team Series matches the energy and field the best. It’s always a great competition with the top players out there.”

Joining Hull and Hall will be a field stacked with talent, including Anne Van Dam of the Netherlands, Singapore’s Shannon Tan, and India’s Diksha Dagar.
