Back In the Winner's Circle with Carly Booth

The long wait for another Ladies European Tour victory is over for Scottish golfer Carly Booth: She's a winner again after claiming the trophy at the 2019 Tipsport Czech Ladies Open.

Booth, still just 27 years old, hadn't won any pro tour events since 2012. That year, she won twice on the LET, including her home country's Ladies Scottish Open, and seemed on her way to bigger things.

There were some injury setbacks along the way, and although Booth maintained her status as a golf glamour girl she had trouble finding the winner's circle again.

After seven years, though, Booth is back. Booth finished the Czech tournament, a dual-ranking event for the LET and LET Access Series, at 9-under 207 after rounds of 68, 69 and 70. She beat the quartet of runners-up — Finland’s Sanna Nuutinen, France’s Anais Meysonnier and England's Charlotte Thompson and Hayley Davis — by one stroke.

“I’m a little bit flabbergasted by the whole day. I played good golf and I really had to dig deep in the final round. I’m overwhelmed with happiness,” Booth said to the assembled media afterward.

“It’s been seven years, so it’s a bit of a shock. Not knowing what the winning score was, I didn’t know anything about the leader board and I made a really solid par in the end."
