Earlier this month, Jenni Falconer boarded the first tee at the GolfSixes Pro-AM with a mixture of excitement and trepidation.
It was her first time at a major golf event, having only picked up a club a matter of weeks earlier.
Supported by her caddy and love.golf coach Jo Taylor, Jenni overcame some early nerves to make a valuable contribution to her team, notably hitting the green with her approach shot to the final hole in both rounds. Though there were a mixture of good and bad holes, it was a remarkable achievement for someone still in the formative stages of their golfing journey.
“I had so much fun out there,” said Jenni. “There was a moment when I wondered what I had got myself into, but having Jo by my side really helped, added to the support from all the love.golf team.
“This was my first ever time at a golf event, and I’ve had such a good time I’ll be coming back with my husband and daughter over the weekend too,” added Jenni.
Jenni has documented every step of her ground-breaking journey into golf as part of a wider #FalconerForeGolf campaign guided by both love.golf and the PGAs of Europe. The goal – to shine a light on the various challenges, questions and benefits that can be experienced by women and girls getting into the game, and ultimately to inspire a new generation of female golfers to enter the sport.
