The 2019 edition of the Hero Women’s Indian Open will mark the 13th edition of the region’s premier women’s golf tournament hosted at scenic DLF Golf & Country Club and this time it will also mark the ninth time arrival of the Scottish Carly Booth.
However, the HWIO has not always been kind to Carly, as she has missed the cut last five times from 2014 to 2018. She also came in 2010, 2011 and 2012 while 2013 has been the only edition she has missed in this decade. Her best at the event has been T-22 in 2012, which incidentally was the year when Carly won her first two Ladies European Tour titles.
Currently, No. 7 on the Ladies European Tour No. 7 the Scottish star, Booth, will be one of the leading lights at the 2019 edition of the $500,00 Hero Women’s Indian Open, which tees off at the DLF Golf and Country Club here on October 3.
Booth, who turned professional after a stellar amateur career in 2010.
Carly comes to India after ending her seven-year title drought with a win at the Tipsport Czech Ladies Open. She is in good form and will be among those to watch for at the DLF’s Gary Player-designed Black Knight course as she is also familiar with the course.
