Henni Zuël is an English professional golfer and the youngest ever player to join the Ladies European Tour as an amateur.
Henni Zuël began her career in golf at a very young age and by 12 years old had a single figure handicap. By 13 Henni was on the way to winning 17 Opens at Under-18 level- never outside top 10 in 50 other tournaments. Zuël became the Teovil Ladies club Champion and England’s Under-13s Champion in 2003. She also won the Dorset Ladies Country Championship and was the youngest player ever to join the Ladies European Tour– playing along side greats like Sophie Gustafson and Laura Davies.
Henni continued adding trophies to her collection by winning the Central European Under-16, the English under-15 Championship and the Welsh Ladies Open in 2005 at just 15. Zuël became the youngest member of Team Faldo after being personally selected by Nick Faldo, this offered her the chance to play in many different countries, including the US and Asia.

Henni turned professional in 2008 and joined the Ladies European Tour, playing her first match as a professional in the Turkish Open. Zuël joined Sky Sports in 2015 as a golf analyst and has been part of her award-winning golf coverage, including during the Ryder Cup and golf’s majors.
In February 2019 Henni left to join Discovery’s GOLFTV to front the streaming services’ tour-player coverage as Lead Tour Correspondent- bringing fans closer to the best action and biggest stories. With GOLFTVs exclusive partnership with Tiger Woods, Henni will also be working alongside him to offer viewers unparalleled and exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the 14-time major champions life on and off tour, including daily heads during tournament weeks and practice-round coverage. Tiger Woods has expressed his excitement of working with Henni saying, “I’m looking forward to working with Henni and the team to share more exclusive access to my reparations and thoughts during tournament weeks.”
