Georgia Hall is one of eight players at three-under-par following the opening day

England’s Georgia Hall, Charley Hull and Bronte Law were three shots off the pace after the first round of the ANA Inspiration tournament at Rancho Mirage, California.

The trio shot three-under 69s to be in a share of eighth place behind Thailand’s Patty Tavatanakit, who birdied four of the last six holes for a 66.

Ireland’s Leona Maguire was one stroke off the lead after carding six birdies to one bogey to share second with China’s Feng Shanshan, with four players a shot further back at four-under.

Hall had a blemish-free round in which she birdied the fourth, 13th and the par-five 18th.

Hull cancelled a birdie on the second with a bogey on the third before recovering with birdies at 11 and 18, while Law was three-under after six before atoning for a bogey six at the ninth with a birdie three on 15.
