About Wallace Booth

Biography

Wallace grew up on the family farm in Comrie, Perthshire.  He was educated at Morrison’s Academy in Crieff, to then begin undergraduate study at Augusta State University in Georgia, USA. Wallace graduated with honours in Business Marketing.


In 2009, Wallace marked the beginning of his professional golfing career, following an already established amateur golfing career, which encompassed an impressive catalogue of achievements in 2008 and 2009.   Wallace’s progress however, was temporarily disrupted by a shoulder injury in 2010 to 2011, from which he has now made a full recovery.   Following the injury, Wallace then struck back and won on the Europro tour at Mar Hall Scottish classic in 2012 and secured his European challenge tour card for 2013.  Full playing rights were obtained on the challenge tour in 2013, 2014 and 2015 consecutively.


Due to personal loss, Wallace struggled to meet his expectations for the most part of 2015 and the first half of 2016, however feels he is now in a strong position to meet 2017 head on. Wallace finished 72th on the EuroPro order of merit this year from limited starts, and now feels his game is in the best shape it has ever been. He feels he finally has the right team around him, giving him confidence and motivation to succeed making 2017 an exciting time where he will be playing on the EuroPro Tour.


Wallace’s love of sport also runs profoundly through the Booth family.  His father competed at wrestling during the 1966 Commonwealth games, winning a silver medal - a sport Wallace also has competed in winning the title of ‘The Aspull International U18's Open in 2002.  His sister Carly is also a professional golfer on the ladies European tour and his brother Paul represented Great Britain at powerlifting during the Special Olympics held in Los Angeles, 2015.
