It might sound hard to believe but Jenni Falconer has only been playing golf since the end of February. The T.V and Radio personality arrived at Nailcote Hall to participate in her first British Par 3 Championship Celeb-Am. Considering how long she has been playing, we wanted to find out more about her golfing journey so far.
Golf was something she had always fancied trying and she made 2018 her year to do exactly that. Since then, she has completely fallen in love with the game. Not only has she participated in Pro-Ams such as Golfsixes, but she is also aiming to get people more involved in the game.
#FalconerForeGolf will showcase her journey from complete novice to ultimately, a fully fledged golfer. Working in conjunction with Love.golf and The PGAs of Europe, Jenni aims to use her newly acquired skills to inspire others to pick up a club just as she has.
We hoped to have a chat with Jenni to find out more about her new found love of golf however, it would turn out that we got a lot more than that. Having never taken on the Nailcote Hall Cromwell Course before, we thought we would give Jenni a helping hand.
“Have you got a caddie for today Jenni?” I asked.
“No, do you think it would help?” came her reply.
“Of course, they do more than just carry the bag. I have someone in mind.”
William Murfitt was the ideal choice. He was my caddie when I took on the British Par 3 Championship last year. If anyone could help Jenni, then it was him. He knew the course, he knew about the game and most importantly of all, he knows just when the right words need to be said to the best out of a player.
Considering Jenni has only been playing for a matter of months it was clear to see that she takes her golf seriously. Here was a player that wants to improve and taking on Will’s advice she successfully navigated her way around the challenging course.
Here she is in action alongside the guys from Muller who proved to be great fun throughout the day. Ben Nichols, Alex DeAth and James Guy...take a bow gents. Ben has only been playing for three weeks by the way. It was a great group to be a part of and hopefully, they will keep on playing after their experience at the British Par 3 Championship.
