Georgia Hall Parents
Georgia’s parents are Wayne and Samantha Hall. Her father, Wayne, was a plasterer while her mother, Samantha, worked as a hairdresser. Her father was her caddie when she won the British Open in August 2018.
After winning the Open in 2018, which was her first LPGA title, she recounted the sacrifices her parents made when she was younger, including golf-mad Wayne selling his clubs to fund one trip to a far-flung tournament.
“My dad was a plasterer and my mum a hairdresser. He played golf and took me down to the local driving range when I was seven. I then joined the kids’ club and I was the only girl. There were seven levels, and I got to the top level quickly. I was beating all the boys and they used to hate that. They were quite embarrassed.
“I did cross-country and football and I was in the boys’ cricket team. I was the only girl. I was a pretty good batsman because I would swing my bat like a golf club. I used to really whack it. I didn’t know it at the time but it was tough for my parents. They didn’t tell me this until a few years ago. But they always had to sell some things for me to have enough money for golf lessons and tournaments. We lived quite far down south and so dad would drive me for four hours to get to a two-hour lesson and then drive me back – on top of working.
“Golf is one of the most expensive sports you can play. You need to pay a lot to join a club, you need golf clubs, all the equipment, lessons. It was hard and I missed three majors I’d qualified for because of a lack of funds. I was in the top three in the world as an amateur but we couldn’t afford to get to me there. I could only get to the British Open. That was frustrating but I always said I will be fine in the end.”

Georgia Hall Husband
Is Georgia Hall married? The golfer is not married. She is dating boyfriend and caddie Harry Tyrrell. In October 2017, the caddy position was handed to her boyfriend, Harry Tyrrell. The first time Tyrrell caddied for Hall was in Abu Dhabi in November 2017. In the couple’s first tournament together, she finished second.
Combining personal and professional relationships can be a tricky affair, but Hall insists that working together as a couple actually soothes her nerves. This, the golfer believes comes down to their contrasting personalities.
“Sometimes, I think he is a bit too laid-back but I think I can be a bit too much the other way, I think I need to relax more,” Hall admits. “Harry definitely helps me as I need someone more relaxed.
“We are still boyfriend and girlfriend on the course but we just stay focused on the golf. I think it is lovely that I have someone I know so well and wants the best for me. He truly wants me to play well and I know he is someone I can speak to as I do get a bit stressed at times. I think that is important.”
On the LPGA Tour, it is more important than ever to have that support, given how isolating life can be on tour. Hall told the Telegraph: “I think it is a team effort – people forget sometimes how much we travel and how much time we spend out on the course. I think it can get very lonely if you are on your own.
“That is another reason why it is great to have Harry with me because if I have to travel 18 hours on the plane, he can help me. But it is more than that, it is about having company in the evenings. That is very important so I don’t feel so alone.”

Georgia Hall Career Earnings
Golfer Georgia Hall has earned $2,542,390 in career earnings since leaving the relatively low-paid European Tour for the LPGA. In her first season on the LPGA in 2018, she made $837,678. She received a winner’s cheque of £375,000 after winning the British Open at Royal Lytham in August 2018. She made $403,490 in 2019, $444,563 in 2020 and $856,659 in 2021.
The golfer has no interest in splashing her hard-earned cash, something she attributes to her “very normal family and upbringing”.
“I think I am sensible and that is because I came from a very normal family and upbringing. I am lucky because of that. If I win a big tournament or do well I have no desire to spend lots of money. When I do want to stop playing, I don’t want to be worrying about money. I think a lot of people my age – or even me a couple of years ago – would have spent a lot of the prize money.”
“With the LPGA, you are playing for a lot more money but it also costs a lot more to get out there. If you are not playing well and missing a lot of cuts, it is extremely expensive,” she told the Telegraph.
“You have to pay for a visa to get over there, which is a lot of money. Flights are even more expensive nowadays, if there is a week where there isn’t a tournament, you still have to pay for accommodation.
“It is expensive but if you do play well, you do earn a lot more money. It is a big change from the LET [Ladies European Tour].”
