Emotional Carly Booth relishes long overdue win

Carly Booth Czech Win

An emotional Carly Booth described herself as “flabbergasted” after winning ending a seven-year winless drought.

The 27-year-old broke down in tears after realising she had won the Tipsport Czech Ladies Open – her third Ladies European Tour title and first since 2012.

The Scot, who started the day tied for the lead, carded rounds of 68, 69 and 70 for a nine-under-par total of 207 at Golf Resort Karlštejn to finish a stroke ahead of Finland’s Sanna Nuutinen, France’s Anais Meysonnier and English pair Charlotte Thompson and Hayley Davis.

“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 leaderboard and I made a really solid par in the end.

“I’ve had some great results here in the Czech Republic in Pro-Ams and to win the tournament means more than anything. After seven years, finally, to get another victory, it’s amazing.”
