Booth earns first win in Scotland
East Lothian, Scotland (Sports Network) - Carly Booth closed with a one-under 71 on Saturday to win the Ladies Scottish Open by one stroke.
Booth finished at four-under-par 212 for her first Ladies European Tour title. Not only was this her first tour win, it was her first career top-10.
The 19-year-old's best previous finish was in 2007 when she finished 13th at this event as an amateur.
Frances Bondad fired a five-under 67 to jump 20 spots into a share of second place at minus-three. She ended alongside Florentyna Parker (72), who shared the second-round lead with Booth.
Booth stumbled to a bogey on the fourth, but she came right back with birdies on five and six at Archerfield Links. Another dropped shot at No. 8 sent her around the turn at minus-three for the championship.
She birdied the par-five 11th to move back to minus-four. Booth parred the final seven holes to claim the win.
Parker also had two bogeys and two birdies on the front nine. She birdied the 12th to move to minus-four, but stumbled to a bogey on 16 to end one back.
Bondad had four birdies on the front nine to soar up the leaderboard. On the back nine, she managed just one birdie on the 12th. Bondad parred the other eight holes around the turn to share second.
Trish Johnson posted a four-under 68 to end alongside Stacey Keating (69) and Melissa Reid (70) at two-under-par 214. Sophie Giquel-Bettan managed a two- under 70 and was the last player in red figures at minus-one.
