Lisa is a former Solheim Cup player and has nine worldwide wins professionally. She married English-born professional golfer and renowned teaching pro Martin Hall in 1998. She has shared this golf journey with Martin for 30 years and as such knows better than any one how and what he teaches. She has taught thousands of students and has watched Martin on a daily basis how to effectively communicate with students to become the kind of golfer they most want to be.
A native of England, she played college golf at the University of Florida and turned professional in 1991. Lisa joined the Ladies European Tour (LET) that year. In 1995 she won the Indonesia Open and topped the Kosaido Asian Circuit Order of Merit. She won her first LET title at the 1996 Women's Welsh Open and played for Europe in the Solheim Cup that year and for a second time in 1998.
In 1997 Lisa joined the LPGA Tour. She finished in the top 10 in three of the four majors in her rookie season and was named Rookie of the Year. However, soon after that, she began to struggle and by 2005 had ceased playing tournament golf. In 2006 Lisa made a comeback on the LET, and won the Northern Ireland Ladies Open in 2007. In 2008 she shot a final round 66 to win the ANZ Ladies Masters.
“Thanks Lisa. I loved the bonus review from my favorite Golf Channel instructor! The review and lesson was awesome. I’ve watched it a couple of times already. I’m sure it’ll help me, including the two video tips. I think I’ve seen those tips in one of the “School of Golf” episodes, but I didn’t think it applied to me before. Now they do. Thanks again!”
