Hall and Davies win opening match at European Championships

Open champion Georgia Hall teamed up with Dame Laura Davies to win the first round of the European Golf Championships this morning at Gleneagles.

The “Great Britiain 1” team took on Spain and won 5&4 ahead of their clash with Germany tomorrow morning.

Hall, 22, goes into the tournament in top form having won her maiden major last week. She had the UK’s most successful ever golfer alongside her in Scotland.

The inaugural European Championships is staged in Glasgow in 2018, with 16 teams of men and women clashing over four days before the players head into the final day for a mixed event.

The European Championships, staged in both Glasgow and Berlin, has over 4,500 athletes competing in seven sports.
