Preparations for the campaign to get more women golfing this May are gathering momentum, as National Golf Month are pleased to announce that Henni Zuel, the TV presenter and former Ladies European Tour golfer, has pledged her support.
Zuel burst on to the golf scene as the youngest player to ever participate in the Ladies European Tour and enjoyed seven successful years at the top of the game. As a journalist and presenter for Sky Sports Golf, she has interviewed many of the world’s top golfers and worked at high-profile events including the Open Championship and Ryder Cup.
She said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be involved in the push to get more women on the course as it is something that is very close to my heart.”
Henni will be supporting National Golf Month’s efforts to get clubs and pros to register their taster sessions in the lead up to May on the National Golf Month website.
“I picked up the game at an early age and instantly recognised that golf challenges you in ways that no other sport can. I’m confident that this drive to help more women get golfing will enable more people recognise some of those benefits,” she added.
She recently welcomed the decision by Muirfield Golf Club to admit female members, telling Sky Sports it was ‘fantastic news’ and that the issue had ‘shed a light’ on promoting equality in the game.
Henni will be supporting National Golf Month in its push through the media and online to get more participants to try the game of golf by using the hashtag #GirlsGetGolfing throughout social media.
