Home hope Georgia Hall and Swede Sofie Bringner got off to a flier among the early starters at the Aramco Team Series — London.

The 2018 British Open champion Hall is looking to further strengthen her bond with the Middle East after claiming the Aramco Saudi Ladies International in March.

The 26-year-old also lost out to Emily Kristine Pedersen in the 2020 Saudi Ladies International in a sudden-death playoff, and she looks in a determined mood to take another Aramco title, this time in the Team Series at Centurion Club, St Albans, just outside London.

The Bournemouth native shot 67 to lead fellow English golfer Bronte Law by one, as the afternoon starters — including the likes of Charley Hull, Annabel Dimmock and Olivia Cowan — got under way.

However, a first bogey at the last for Hall, coupled with a stunning birdie, birdie, eagle finish for Bringner allowed the Swede to sign for a 66 and a one-stroke lead at the top.

Dutch duo Anne Van Dam and Pasqualle Coffa also made fine starts with a pair of 69s to sit on four-under.

In the afternoon, Jenny Haglund joined Hall on six-under to make it a Swedend, England, Sweden, England leaderboard. A whole host of players lurk on four-under, including England’s Hull and Johanna Gustavsson, from — you guessed it — Sweden.
