My name is Charlotte Thompson, I am a professional golfer from Chelmsford in Essex.
I turned professional in December 2013 for my first ladies European tour school. My dream is to be Europes No 1, a major winner & Solheim Cup player.
I am a fun, competitive and personable girl who feels very lucky to play the sport I love as my career. I have been around golf and sport from a very young age. For my 8th birthday I was lucky enough to get a full set of golf clubs, and that’s really where my golfing journey began. When I was young my whole family played golf, my mum, dad, two sisters, both sets of grand parents and aunts and uncles so you can understand how I got into golf. Golf is such an amazing sport, I feel very grateful that I even had the chance to play let alone have a career in it.
I look forwards to sharing my on going golfing journey with you all.
Was my best year to date, finishing 15th on the Ladies European Tour. Towards the end of the 2018 season I made the decision to change coaches and start working with David Laffar, he had a huge input into my best year so far which included a Tied 2nd in the Tipsport Czech Ladies Open, a Tied 3rd in the La Reserva de Sotogrande, a Tied 8th in the Lalla Meryem Cup and a Tied 10th in the Lacoste Ladies Open de France. This also included playing in my first major as a professional. A year to remember and use the confidence from moving forward.
So after playing mainly on the LET Access tour for two years, at the end of 2017 I gained full playing rights to the LET by finishing in the top 5 on the Access order of merit. This included Tied 2nd, Tied 4th, 5th, Tied 6th, Tied 7th and Tied 13th place finishes. After finishing 6th on the order of merit in the previous year it was great to have another good season and gain status on the main tour again.
At the start of 2014 I made the tough decision to change coaches and to start working with Robert Rock – European Tour winner. Not only has Robert helped me to improve my swing he has also improved my understanding of my game and swing itself.
My first year on tour was a big learning curve with memories and experiences I will never forget. Having learnt from my 2014 season I managed to finish 4th in the Solvesborg Ladies open hosted by Fanny Sunesson.
Following my success at the Lalla Aicha Tour School, Morocco in December I am looking forward to competing on the Ladies European Tour 2016 season.
In 2013 I retained my title as the Essex Ladies Champion
I also won the East Region Championship at Brikendon Grange and was tied Leader in the Liphook Scratch Cup
I finished 11th in the England order of merit and represented England in the Nations Cup at the Welsh Stroke play and the St Rule trophy at St Andrews.
In December 2013, I competed in my first Ladies European Tour school.
I qualified and gained my full playing rights on the LET.
A successful 2012 consisted of:
Finishing 7th in the England Order of Merit.
Essex Ladies Champion.
Porters Park Centenary Cup Tied Champion.
English Women’s Stroke play Runner Up.
Runner up in the East Region Championship.
Being part of the winning team at county finals.
Finished 13th in the British Ladies Stroke play.
My greatest achievement for 2012 was qualifying for the RICOH Women’s British Open at Hoylake. At the pre-qualifier I finished tied 15th and the top 25 out of 95 went through to the final stage at Caldy Golf Club. At the final qualifier I finished tied 17th and the top 21 qualified for the Open.
I finished 7th in the English Girls Amateur Championship at Seacroft Golf Club and I broke the course record at my home course, Channels in Chelmsford, Essex with a round of 69 (-3). I have represented my county since I was 14 – playing for the Essex Girls team at county week for 3 years – playing in the Essex Ladies second team matches for a year – playing in the first team for the remainder of my amateur career. I was part of the Essex 1st team when we won the regional county match week at Purdis Heath winning 9/9 matches, and then part of the team at county finals week at East Devon where Essex won the trophy for the first time in 33 years.
Aged 12 I entered the Wee Wonders competition to try and get a place to represent the GB&I team in Virginia. I had to win three different stages. The first three stages were all flag competitions and the grand final was a scratch competition.
I went on to win the three stages and represented Great Britain & Ireland in the Wee Wonders in Virginia.
That same year I got selected for the England Birdie group where I had England training with Keith Wood at Brocket Hall for two years.
