Onetime amateur phenom Carly Booth is the winner of the Dinard Ladies Open on the LET Access Series. Booth claimed victory with a birdie on the first playoff hole, defeating Marion Ricordeau after both had finished on 206. It is, as far as I can determine, Booth's first victory in a professional tournament. She doesn't turn 20 until June.

Booth, from Scotland, won her club championship when she was only 11. The women's club championship, not the girls'. Throughout her mid-teens she dominated girls golf in Scotland, winning the Ladies Home Internationals in 2007 and 2009; the Scottish Girls Under-18 championship in 2007-08; and the Scottish Girls Under-21s in 2007. She played on Europe's Junior Ryder Cup team in 2006 and 2008 and on the Great Britain & Ireland Curtis Cup team in 2008.

Booth made it through LET Q-School and turned pro at age 17 in early 2010. Since turning pro, her best finish in an LET event to date is 19th place at the 2011 Ladies Scottish Open.
