Head Professional: Sophie Walker
Sophie first held a golf club when she was 18 months old thanks to her Dad’s consuming passion for the game. At the age of 13 she was playing for her county, Lincolnshire, and for England by the time she was 15. During this time Sophie enjoyed some great successes, winning the English Girls Championship in 2000, the Daily Telegraph Championship in 2000 and 2001 and the English Girls stroke play in 2002. She progressed rapidly and joined the senior squad at 18, which coincided with starting Loughborough University where she gained a 2:1 in Sports Science and Management whilst also winning the English Amateur Championships and representing England and Great Britain!
Sophie turned professional in October 2006 and has been playing on the Ladies European Tour for 12 consecutive years, competing in 33 countries. She has played in 6 Majors (5 British Opens and 1 US Open) and career highlights to date include: 2nd at the Scottish Open; 3rd Open De Espana; 13 top 10 finishes on Ladies European Tour; Playing in the British Open at St Andrews; Playing in the US Open at Shoal Creek Roehampton Gold Cup winner.
Sophie is fully trained in Foresight technology and personally taught swing catalyst by the renowned biomechanics professor, Dr Scott Lynn. She has worked with many of the top coaches in the world such as Phil Kenyon, Karl Morris, Steve Peters, Faye Downey, Dr Scott Lynn, David Ridley and has also played with the very best (Laura Davies, Annika Sorenstam, Lexi Thompson). The key to my game is driving the golf ball, last season on the Ladies European Tour I averaged 83.57% fairways hit.
Sophie’s enduring appetite for golf is as strong today as when she started hence why, alongside her playing career, she started working at The Range. She loves to share her many years of experience and knowledge to help others play to their best and get the most from each game. She understands all the ups and downs of playing the sport from being a complete novice to a seasoned pro and everywhere in between. Sophie Walker’s first question to students is always `What do you want? It’s about your game, I’m just here to make the ride more enjoyable and lower your scores`!
