Michele Thomson had a fine amateur career representing her county and country at both junior and ladies level before being selected to represent GB+I in the Curtis Cup in 2008 against the USA at St Andrews. In the same year she became the Scottish Ladies Amateur Champion and secured a conditional card for the Ladies European Tour where her best finish was T14 in the Deloitte Ladies Open in Holland.
Michele turned pro in 2009 but shortly decided to take a break from the game to pursue a career in the police force. She came back as a full-time pro in 2013 and played local events and some on the LET Access Series. By 2015, she had a win in Spain and was eighth on LET Access Series Money List. A year later, in 2016, she secured her full card for the LET in 2017, finishing fourth on the LET Access Series. 2017 was Michele’s best year yet, finishing as the top Scot in 16th on the LET’s Order of Merit which included a second-place finish at the Hero Women’s Indian Open.
