Henni Zuel has left Sky Sports to join Discovery’s GOLFTV to spearhead the streaming service’s tour-player coverage as Lead Tour Correspondent.
Zuel, a former Ladies European Tour player, joined Sky Sports in 2015 and has been part of the broadcaster’s award-winning golf coverage since then, including during the Ryder Cup and golf’s majors.

Among other things, this will include daily hits with Woods during tournament weeks, practice round coverage and behind-the-scenes interactions between Woods and his team.
“Golf is my passion and has been a central part of my life from an early age, from learning the game to joining the Ladies European Tour to telling the stories of golf’s biggest events to fans at home,” said Zuel, who starts her role at this week’s Genesis Open.
