Holly’s Putter Coach - Christian Fogden is very pleased with how she is fairing with the Two Thumb grip, he says “Holly uses the new size 27 Putter grip which helps to keep her stability where it needs to be when swinging through the stroke”. Christian is the Head Golf Professional at Goodwood Estates.
27 year old Holly Aitchison from Bedfordshire joined the Ladies European Tour in January 2009 after a dramatic top 20 finish at Q-School (just 10 weeks earlier, Holly had been hobbling around on crutches).
Holly started playing golf at the age of 11 having been introduced to the game by father and brother. She represented Bedfordshire as a junior and as an adult, and won the County Championship 3 times.
Holly finished the 2014 season in style. After an up and down season, she made the cut in each of her last 5 events, enabling her to climb from 102nd to 64th in the Order of Merit. She had started 2013 ranked 32 on the ISPS Handa Order Of Merit after a very successful 2012. 2012 saw her match or better all her career best milestones: lowest round, highest finish, most cuts, most top 10s, most birdies in a round...it goes on. If Holly starts 2015 the way she finished 2014, she will definitely be improving on her 64th position.
Holly has a career best finish of 2nd place at the Deloitte Dutch Ladies Open in 2011 and the Sanya Ladies Open in China in 2012 as well as 6 other top 10 finishes.
