Hall had opened with two bogies in the first four holes and despite birdies at the 5th and 8th holes a bogey at the 9th meant she turned in one-over-par. However, a flawless back nine that included two birdies saw her move under par and end up the only player in the field in red figures.
“It’s awesome that I’ve won. I’ve played in three events previously and come second three times, so I’m very happy to win and get the job done today.” Said the 24-year-old from Poole.
“I didn’t start off great. I was two-over after four or five, but I just stayed really patient out there and calm, so I think that was my main focus for today. On the back nine, I had three or four putts which were around eight footers for par and the pins were very hard today, so I holed a lot of good putts which was great.”
Sitting alongside MacLaren on level par in second place were Emily Slater, Inci Mehmet, Cara Grainer along with amateurs Lily May Humphreys and Mimi Rhodes.
Hall now sits behind Fellow Englishwoman Charley Hull in the Rose Ladies Series standings. Hull had an eventful round which included five birdies, two bogies and three double bogies which all added up to a three-over-par round of 75.
Dame Laura Davies was in contention after birdying the 11th hole to move to one under par; however, a triple-bogey seven at the par-four 13th by 56-year-old ruined her chances and she would fade to a five-over 77.
The final event before the series 54-hole finale is next week at The Shire, London. The Grand Final kicks off at North Hants on 5 August before moving to The Berkshire and the then finally the West course at Wentworth.
