Hall said: “This has definitely been one of the top three highlights of the season. Getting an LPGA tour card means a lot for next year, I didn’t want to not get it and play in hardly anything again. I want to see what it’s really like on the LPGA. Since I’ve turned pro, this has been my goal.”
Speaking about her opening round she said: “That was the worst round I played all year. I watched the video after the round and my swing was completely off but I’m back to normal now.”
Many other players were quick to offer their congratulations on Twitter.
