The Aramco Team Series presented by PIF – London in July is shaping up as a preview for the 2024 Paris Olympics, with Great Britain’s Charley Hull and Georgia Hall leading the early field announcements.

The duo are sure to be a hit with the home crowds, and with further announcements set to follow on a strong field, both are looking to build on fantastic 2023 outings at the tournament.

Last year, Hull came up just short to USA’s Nelly Korda in the individual competition, while Hall was able to captain her team to victory in extremely difficult conditions, edging out Hull’s team by just one stroke.

Now England’s dynamic duo, who are also long-time best friends, are aiming to secure their places representing Great Britain at the 2024 Paris Olympics and become the first to win a medal for Team GB in a women’s golf event.

The golf at the 2024 Paris Olympics, where Korda is set to defend her gold medal from Tokyo 2020, kicks off a little over a month after the Aramco Team Series presented by PIF – London event, and the ‘Major-like’ event at Centurion Club will provide the pair the perfect opportunity to prepare themselves for the grand stages of the sport, with fellow potential Olympians set to be in the competitive field.

Hull has recently achieved a career-high Rolex Women’s Golf World Ranking of seventh following her impressive T2 finish at the Aramco Team Series presented by PIF – Tampa in March 2024.

Reflecting on her preparations for the summer, Charley Hull commented: “At the start of the season I sat down and thought about how I wanted this year to pan out. I knew that there would be an important summer of golf ahead with the Olympic Games, Solheim Cup and chasing down my first Major title.

“I’m in the best place I’ve ever been in my career, mentally and physically. Sticking to the gym in those early hours and achieving 5km personal bests was a way to ground myself and clear my head, and this is really helping me out on the course.

“To have the Aramco Team Series at home is the best way to open the intense summer ahead. Playing in a field with some of the players I’ll face in Paris, and at a tournament like this that has that Major-like feel, will be a great dress rehearsal for me to aim for that gold medal.”

Hall, looking to defend her Aramco Team Series presented by PIF – London team title, sees the event as a crucial step in her 2024 campaign, which could well feature the Solheim Cup in September.

Excited about the prospect of returning to London, Georgia Hall said: “The Aramco Team Series in London will be my first appearance in the event this year and I’m buzzing to get back into playing with a team which will hopefully be a great transition to the Solheim Cup in September.

“Competing against Charley as a team captain again, so close to home, will add an extra layer of excitement, especially with friends and family cheering us on. I’ve played my fair share of Majors and outside of those, the Aramco Team Series matches the energy and field the best. It’s always a great competition with the top players out there.”

Joining Hull and Hall will be a competitive Ladies European Tour (LET) field, including players such as Anne Van Dam of the Netherlands, Singapore’s Shannon Tan, and India’s Diksha Dagar – all using the event as a platform to fine-tune their skills ahead of the 2024 Paris Olympics.
