-1 Becky Morgan (Wal), Charley Hull (Eng), Hannah Burke (Eng)
Georgia Hall, the 2018 Women's British Open champion, was in a class of her own in the last event before next week's Grand Final, firing a five-under 67 to cruise to a three-shot victory. Her win also moved her up to the top of the Rose Series Order of Merit, above Charley Hull in second and Liz Young in third.
Series co-founder Liz Young birdied four of the first five holes to lead briefly from Hall, but only one more birdie and three bogeys would see her finish with a two-under-par 70 and a tie for second with Scotland's Kylie Henry.
Charley Hull, the World no 25, had a nightmare start, dropping three shots in the first two holes, but an eagle at the 13th helped her finish tied for third with Hannah Burke and Becky Morgan at one-under-par.
After her win Georgia Hall said:
“I missed the first two events and thought I may have conceded too much ground in the Order of Merit race, but three seconds followed by two wins has been put me up there. It’s been consistent and, again, I played very solid today.”
The top 51 qualifiers will now head to the Rose Series Grand Final, which is to be played over 54-holes at three different venues next week. The first round is at North Hants on Wednesday 5 August, the second at The Berkshire on Thursday 6 August, before the top 35 and ties qualify for the final 18 holes of the Series over the West Course at Wentworth on Friday 7 August.
