Emilie Piquot

Professional golfer

"The team spirit that we think is absent from golf exists in Deauville"

Emilie Piquot was introduced to golf very early, "bitten" from the age of 3 by this demanding sport. At 8 years old, she started competitions. Thanks to its very good amateur results, in 2006 it joined the Pôle Espoir de France at the CREPS in Dinard and subsequently participated in all major major national and international competitions. Quickly spotted by sports professionals in the region, she was closely followed by Arnaud Lagniel, then coach of the Lower Normandy league. After a break, she joined the Golf Barrière de Deauville as a starter, where she played today, resumed amateur competitions and won eight grand-prizes throughout France. "I rediscovered the pleasure of playing thanks to the atmosphere that reigns within this club. This team spirit that we think is absent from golf exists in Deauville. The members are all behind me, ready to support me; It gives me even more desire to play well, ”agrees the one who will become in 2013 the best golfer in Normandy.

At the end of 2014, with many victories, she decided to pass the access cards to the professional circuit and obtained a right to play on the Ladies European Tour Access Series (LET Access), the second division European female. During her first year as a professional player, Emilie traveled across Europe to play 12 LET Access tournaments. She ends the 2015 season at the 13st place of the Order of Merit of the second European division thanks to its good results: 2st in Germany, 6st in Belgium, 12st in Sweden, 17st in France in Dinard and several other cuts crossed. At the end of 2015, Emilie obtained a partial right to play on the Ladies European Tour (LET), the first European division. Emilie Piquot will therefore share her 2016 season between LET and LET Access to play around fifteen tournaments throughout Europe.

At 24, Emilie is now sixteenth French player in the standings and hides, behind an unalterable smile, a fierce desire to progress with the support of her coach and teacher at the Golf Barrière in Deauville, Frédéric Bonhomme. "Emilie is one of the most successful players in driving, he believes. Her game allows her to respond to all situations. She has developed this creativity since her beginnings."

Emilie Piquot now sets the bar high. "Having entered the Ladies European Tour has allowed me to gain my skills. I dream of one day entering the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), the American tour. This is my number one objective. rabies, I want to make it happen! "
