CARLY BOOTH SECURES FIRST TITLE IN SEVEN YEARS

The Scot secured a one-shot victory in the Czech Ladies Open.

Scotland’s Carly Booth was “overwhelmed with happiness” after winning her first Ladies European Tour title for seven years at the Czech Open.

Booth carded rounds of 68 and 69 to go into the final round tied for the lead with Finland’s SannaNuutinen, but the nerves appeared to be getting the better of her in the early stages – hitting her first drive out of bounds – and dropping three shots in her first four holes.

However, the Scot regrouped and produced a typically gutsy fight-back to regain a share of the lead and, crucial birdies on the 16th and 17th, meant a par was enough to see her crowned champion by one shot over English pair Charlotte Thompson and Hayley Davis, as well as Nuutinen and France’s AnaisMeysonnier.

Booth first tasted success as a 19-year-old when she became the youngest-ever winner of the Ladies Scottish Open – but has struggled to get back in the winner’s circle since.

“I got to the 18th, holed my par putt and I had no idea that I had won, so I am still flabbergasted by the whole day,” said Booth, a child prodigy from the Scottish village of Auchterarder.

“I played good golf, I really had to dig deep in this final round.

“I bogeyed two holes, birdied two holes and then parred the last, so it was such an up and down day for me and I am a bit overwhelmed.”

The 27-year-old won the Swiss Open in 2012, weeks after her first title at the Scottish Open, but this trophy will taste sweet after waiting seven years for her third victory on the LET.

Nine-time major winner Gary Player was one of the first to congratulate Booth on her victory.

Player tweeted: “I am simply over the moon for you Carly Booth. You’ve never stopped working, never stopped fighting. Congratulations from the Player family on this LET win. We shed tears of joy with you and are so proud of you!”
