Georgia Hall is ready to test her game on the links of Turnberry at the Women's British Open from Thursday.

Dorset golfer Hall, 19, made her way through qualifying at Irvine Golf Club on Monday to secure her first ever place at the major as a professional.

Hall will only have time for one practice round at Turnberry, but is relishing the opportunity.

"For me, it's the biggest tournament in the world and the greatest major," she told BBC Radio Solent.

Hall, a member of Parkstone Golf Club near Bournemouth, finished tied 33rd at the Scottish Open at Troon on Sunday before shooting a four-under-par 70 at Irvine to guarantee her Turnberry place.

"I've never played at Turnberry, but I've walked a lot of the holes and noticed there's a number of bunkers in my driving distance," she added.

"I'll probably have to adjust my iron shots, but links golf suits me and it's nice to get out on these courses when I can."
