"I would like to thank my dad for caddying and keeping me company, as well as my mum for doing everything for me growing up". His grandmother is one of his biggest supporters who navigated her way around the hills of Firestone using a walker in 90-degree heat.
'It's incredible. I had so much support today from all the people backing me and supporting me and cheering my name. "It's hard to put into words".
She followed Stupples and Catriona Matthew - in 2009 at Lytham - as the only British winners of the Women's British Open since it achieved major status in 2001.
Georgia was born during the 1996 Masters won by English golfer Nick Faldo at Augusta, Ga.
9 AHEAD of a tournament in Abu Dhabi past year, Hall hit a drive of 579 yards on Yas Marina race track, believed to be the world's longest drive by a female golfer.
The only amateur to make the cut, Thitikul looks to be in line to join an increasingly deep bench of Thai players in the women's game.
Hall, meanwhile, upstaged all to register her very first win since turning professional when she carded a closing five-under-par 67.
Hideki Matsuyama and Isao Aoki's runner-up finishes at the U.S. Open past year and in 1980, respectively, are the closest a Japanese male golfer has gotten to a major title.
Hall had briefly enjoyed a share of the lead when she birdied the first and although she also picked up shots on the fourth and sixth that was only good enough to stay in touch on 15 under.
The 22-year-old, from Bournemouth, is just the fifth British victor of a major and only the third home victor of this event since it achieved that status in 2001, following in the footsteps of Karen Stupples (2004) and Catriona Matthew (2009).
The final day turned out to be a two horse race between the pair at the back of the field, Hall and Pornanong. Then, when Hall rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt at No. 13, they were tied for the first time since the first hole.
However, a bogey, just her second of the whole Championship, on the eighth after a drive into long grass saw Hall move back to just a stroke behind.
But Hall staged a great back nine charge with three birdies in four holes from the 13th, the 25-footer at the 16th earning the lead for the first time.
A wobble in the sand on the 14th almost saw Hall lose all the progress she made on the front nine, but Hall managed to make par. An official with NBC/Golf Channel said the decision to air the broadcast in this manner was made based on the fact that Hall and Phatlum teed off in the final twosome at 9:30 a.m.
However, a double bogey from Phatlum on the 17th sent Hall three clear, giving her plenty of breathing space to complete a famous victory, finishing on 17-under for the tournament.
In the end, it was Georgia Hall, the player who avoided the bunkers who prevailed on Royal Lytham's links.
