Rookie of the Year
Reid was born in Derby, England. As an amateur she won several events including the 2004 and 2005 English Girls' Championship, the 2006 and 2007 Helen Holm Trophy, the 2007 St Rule Trophy, and the 2007 British Amateur Strokeplay Championship. She played on the Great Britain and Ireland team in the 2006 Curtis Cup.
Reid was the low amateur at the 2007 Women's British Open with a T16 finish.
Reid failed to earn her card at the 2007 LET Qualifying School in Italy but turned professional in late 2007 and began playing on the Ladies European Tour in 2008 on sponsor invitations. A third-place finish at the Australian Open in early February allowed her to stay in the top 20 on the money list and gain entrance into LET events for the rest of the season. She placed 12th on the money list in 2008 and was named LET Rookie of the Year.
Reid's first LET victory came in 2010 at the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open. She followed that up with two wins in 2011 and was a member of the 2011 Solheim Cup team, securing a spot on the European team as the leader in the LET rankings.
In May 2012 Reid's mother, Joy, was killed in an automobile crash near Munich while travelling to see her daughter compete in a Ladies European Tour event. Reid quickly returned to golf but her performance declined rapidly in the ensuing years. In September 2015, Reid told ESPN that her life "was a mess ... I wasn't coping, I was rebelling. I was spending time with people who partied. I was hitting the self-destruct button. I was with a lot of people, but I was lonely." On 10 December 2018, Reid came out as gay in an interview with Athlete Ally.
