Amateur careerEdit

Hall began her golfing career at Canford Magna Golf Club. She won two gold medals at the 2013 Australian Youth Olympic Festival. She had a successful amateur career winning the 2013 British Ladies Amateur Golf Championship.

Professional careerEdit

Turning professional in July 2014, Hall had an early success, winning the Open Generali de Strasbourg on the LET Access Series. In early 2016, she won the Oates Victorian Open on the ALPG Tour.

Hall earned her 2018 LPGA Tour card through qualifying school.[2]

Hall won her first major championship at the 2018 Women's British Open.

Personal lifeEdit

Hall's father, Wayne, acted as caddie for her during the 2018 Women's British Open.[3] She was born two days before Nick Faldo pulled off one of the greatest sporting comebacks in history to win his third Masters title at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Faldo's famous win in Georgia inspired her name.[3]

Hall was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2019 Birthday Honours for services to golf.[4]
