Three of the UK’s biggest female golf stars have been confirmed for the Aramco Team Series — London, taking place at Centurion Club on June 16-18.
Georgia Hall, Charley Hull and Bronte Law, all part of victorious Solheim Cup campaigns in recent years, will headline the $1 million team and individual event that returns to London for a second successive year on the Ladies European Tour.
Last year’s debut event saw some of the biggest names in women’s golf compete, including Lexi Thompson and Atthaya Thitikul, with stars from the LET.
Tickets for the ATS in London are now available from just £5.
No. 1-ranked Brit Hall has enjoyed a strong 2022 with a commanding victory at the Aramco Saudi Ladies International in March, and a strong showing on the LPGA. Last year’s ATS -— London saw Hall shoot a 64 to break the course record in her second round.
“Any time you get to tee it up on home soil it’s very special indeed, so an opportunity to win individually or with my team in London at the Aramco Team Series is something that would obviously be a massive season highlight,” said Hall.
“I love the concept and a chance to play and win with a range of different players with some good memories from last year. Women’s sport and UK golf is booming at the moment, so fun and exciting events like this on the LET provide a massive opportunity for more women and girls to get inspired to play.”
Hull, ranked 31st in the world, has enjoyed two top 10 finishes to date this season and returns to the ATS after a stellar 2021 where she had finishes of third, fourth, first and 13th in the individual events.
This season’s ATS will also see a revised format for the event with the team event taking place over the first two days, and the third and final round for individuals making the cut in a last-day shootout.
“I’ve performed well individually at the Aramco Team Series events, so I think this new format suits me,” said Hull, who impressed again in the ATS last week playing in its debut Bangkok leg. “It’s an exciting way to start a big summer for us with events the players all look forward to in terms of profile, fun and great prize money opportunities.”
The Aramco Team Series is golf’s first team event series on any professional tour -— with visits this season to Bangkok, London, Sotogrande, New York and Jeddah. The format, which includes a player-led draft at each event, gives more golfers tournament opportunities helped by teaming up with the best players on the planet. The teams will feature three LET players and an amateur fourth member – a position open to all golfers in the UK for the Aramco Team Series – London through the tournament’s ‘Team Up’ competition.
