Hall, who won the Women's British Open in 2018, is ranked 39th in the world and number three in England.

Georgia Hall may be a top athlete, but until the conclusion of the coronavirus, she had never been such a runner.

This week, the 2018 Women's Open Champion should have been the first major of the year, the ANA Inspiration in California, in an effort to add a new major title to her resume.

Instead, Hall embraces her newfound activity pounding the streets around her new home near Parkstone in Dorset and then following with indoor exercise drills because, despite the season shrouded in uncertainty, she's half keep an eye on what she believes will be a very busy end of the golf year.

"I want to take the opportunity to try to get fitter because I think when we start it will be nine, ten weeks in a row. So I don't want to get tired when the golf season starts again , "the 23-year-old told BBC Sport.

"I have resistance bands, mats, foam rollers, so I do a little bit of that. But as my only form of outdoor exercise, I'm probably going for a 30, 40 minute run, something I've never done, never

"I force myself to run, which is very good for me and for my willpower because I have never been so good at. I really try to spend more than five or six kilometers every day. "

And if she doesn't use her one day out, she probably has a paintbrush in her hand.

" Since I recently moved to a new place, I'm lucky to have things like painting and doing things around the house, "the 23-year-old told BBC Sport." I try to keep myself busy.

"I think it's pretty easy to sit on the couch all day and do nothing, so I try to do at least one or two productive things a day. Keep me going."

Hall says she finds satisfaction in her attempts to decorate her new home, but that she is not overly ambitious with her DIY skills. "I want it all done now, so I don't worry about it when we finally get out again," she said.

& # 39; I shouldn't touch anything important! & # 39;

The Majors Hall prefers to participate in tournaments such as the Women's British Open which she won so brilliantly two years ago at Royal Lytham and the ANA Inspiration that she should have played at Rancho Mirage this week.

"It's very strange to be home all the time," said Hall, who last played at the Australian Open in mid-February.

"It's a very strange time in the world right now. Golfers are always When we travel around the world, we're not used to being in one place a lot.

" There is of course nothing I would like more than playing an event now, but there are far more important things going on in the world than golf, I totally understand that. "

It is not lost in Hall that this week would have been the first major meeting in women's golf since Europe won the United States' Solheim Cup in Gleneagles last September.

" I have seen a bit of that Solheim last weekend, "she said." They had the singles on and it's the first time I've watched it in full.

"I had seen bits and pieces, but I had never seen the ongoing commentary non-stop."

On the dramatic final day, Hall was third and earned an essential European point Beating Lexi Thompson 2 & 1 to win four of her four games that week.

Her performances formed the basis for the house side's astonishing 14½-13½ victory victory that was achieved with quick successive wins for Bronte Law and Suzann Pettersen at the end of Sunday afternoon.

"It was really good to see my match and everyone else's and how it ended up and how fast it was. I didn't really know," Hall admitted.

"In times like that it really made me feel more excited and it was so much fun to watch and see the team."

Hall stays in touch with some of them while they Trading Instagram challenges without a game of golf. She has a chipping net in her new yard, while her lounge is reserved for practice.

"It just makes me want to cherish things when we start playing again," she said.

"I never thought in my life that we would experience something like this and it came up pretty quickly. The only positive thing you can get out of this is realizing how much I love what I do, I love traveling and I miss the travel family. "
