Great things have been expected of Carly Booth since becoming the youngest ladies’ club champion in Britain at the age of 11 at Dunblane New. At 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 Under18 and Under-21 titles.
In 2008, she became the youngest player to represent Great Britain & Ireland in the 76year 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.
At the end of 2009 aged 17, she became the youngest-ever Scot to qualify for the LET. 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. Sporting achievement runs in the family, Wally was a British wrestling champion and Carly’s second brother Paul was a medal winner at the 2010 Special Olympics.
2010 was Carly’s last year at school yet her first year as a professional golfer on the Ladies European Tour, she did well to achieve 3 A levels whilst playing on Tour. Needless to say it was a busy year and she retained her playing rights for 2011.to play full time on the LET. Carly found her stride mid 2011 to finish the season consistently making cuts and focusing on top 10 finishes.
2012 was a great year for Carly she took her first professional title at the Dinard Ladies Open, part of the LET Access Series, followed directly by her first win on the main Ladies European Tour at the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open. She quickly followed this victory with another at the Deutschebank Ladies Swiss Open and finished 2012 5th on the Order of Merit.
Carly is yet to replicate the success that she enjoyed in 2012, although she has qualified for two majors, returning to the Ricoh Women’s British Open and playing in the US Women’s Open for the first time. She also kicked off the 2013 season with a photo shoot for ESPN The Body, which was very well received and has considerably grown her profile in the USA.
Carly is a fierce opponent, who loves the winners circle. She is determined to succeed, this is only the start to what is sure to be a glittering career. She has recently become part of the Chester based Georgia Golf Company who now act as her official management team.
