European LPGA Tour Profile - Carly Booth


At the end of 2009, aged 17, she became the youngest-ever Scot to

 qualify for the Ladies European Tour. Carly became the youngest ladies'

 club champion in Britain at the age of 11 at Dunblane New.

Upon turning professional, Booth had a golf scholarship to complete at

 Glenalmond School in Scotland. She started there after returning from

 America, where a stay at David Leadbetter's Academy in Florida was

followed by a spell at a school in Arizona. As a youngster, Booth was able

 to practice on the course made exclusively for her and her brother,

 professional golfer Wallace, by her father Wally at the family farm near

 Comrie. Wally was a Commonwealth Games silver medallist wrestling

 champion.

Carly enjoyed an amateur career richly laced with records and

 accolades, being described as a Scottish golfing prodigy. Aged 12, she

 played with Sandy Lyle in the British Masters Pro-Am and at 14 she

 appeared in her first professional event, the Ladies Scottish Open, and

 finished 13th. She was rated the No1 junior in Europe after winning the

 European Junior Masters in 2007, the same year she lifted the Scottish

 Under-18 and Under-21 titles. In 2008, she became the youngest player to

 represent Great Britain & Ireland in the 76-year history of the Curtis Cup,

 facing the Americans in the 35th staging of that match at St Andrews.

 She also played at the Junior Ryder Cup in 2006 and 2008 and won the

 Daily Telegraph Finals in 2007 and 2008. In 2010, she finished 14th at LET

 Final Stage Qualifying School for 2010.

Booth made her professional debut on the Ladies European Tour at the

 Lalla Meryem Cup in Morocco. She won her first event in May 2012 at the

 Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open. She won her second

 event in June at the Deutsche Bank Ladies Swiss Open.
