We are delighted to announce the signing of our first professional lady golfer – 19 year old rising star, Cloe Frankish. Cloe joins Team Jenahura at an exciting time in her career having successfully earned her Ladies European Tour playing privileges for 2019 via the LET Access Series last season.
The management and sponsorship agreement will see Jenahura manage Cloe and also provide her with sponsorship via the Jenahura Tour Academy which officially launches on 4th February 2019. Cloe will wear the Jenahura Tour Academy logo on her apparel.
Cloe Frankish turned professional in 2016 at Lalla Aicha Tour School at the age of 17. Last year, she qualified impressively to compete in the 2018 Women’s British Open where she made the cut, eventually finishing in a tie for 64th place in her first major championship. During her amateur career, Frankish won the English Girls Championship two years in a row including a record breaking 12-shot win in 2015! In the same year she won the Scottish Ladies Open by 7-shots!
Martyn Norris, Group Managing Director at Jenahura commented “I only needed to watch Cloe hit half a dozen shots to see that she possesses a special talent. Cloe’s coach, Paul Holland who has also guided Team Jenahura star Richard McEvoy to European Tour success cannot speak highly enough about Cloe describing her as completely fearless. You just cannot teach fearlessness and this quality combined with her powerful swing will give her a great chance to succeed at the very highest level of the Ladies professional game. We believe she will do just that and are equally excited to have her join our outstanding team of talented, hard working individuals.”
Cloe said “I’m really happy to join Jenahura. They have a great team of people and that is just what I need. It’s been a long winter and I can’t wait to get going now. I am flying to Dubai next week to practice before starting my season at Bonville Golf Resort in Australia on 21st February. I’m very excited!”
The contract was signed at Chart Hills Golf Club where Cloe receives fantastic support from the club and members.
