The LA Open saw a dramatic finale on Sunday as Georgia Hall of Bournemouth fell just short of victory.
The British golfer had been in contention for the title all week and entered the final day in a tie for the lead with Frenchwoman Celine Boutier.
Hall started strongly, carding a birdie at the par-4 1sthole to take the lead, but she was unable to keep the momentum going and eventually fell one shot behind Boutier.
The British golfer had a chance to take the lead back on the 17thhole but her birdie putt stayed just out of the hole and she eventually finished in second place.
Boutier sealed the win in style with an eagle at the par-5 18thhole and was able to celebrate a memorable victory.
For Hall, it was a bittersweet result. She had led the tournament after two rounds and was in the hunt until the final hole.
Speaking after the tournament, Hall said: “I’m disappointed not to win but I’m still really happy with the way I played. I gave it my all and that’s all I can do.”
Hall will take heart from her performance in LA and will be looking to build on it as she continues her preparations for the upcoming US Women’s Open in Arizona.
