3031more 8 winter 2011/2012Interview

3031What is the best way to get started in golf?Head to your local driving range. The main thing is to have fun and not take it too seriously at the start. Some people have a natural eye for the ball and others will take a little longer. Progress onto a par 3 to help improve feel, then it's practice and more practice. Enjoy it!!Who is in your fantasy 4 ball?Tiger has to be in there, he has something very special and I could learn a lot, plus what better feeling than taking a hole or two off Woods! Ricky Gervais to add some humour and Justin Timberlake for the looks! If you could teach anyone to play golf who would it be and why?Freddie Flintoff and Harry Redknapp! Why? Because it would help De Vere! How did you first get into golf?I actually grew up on a golf course. My parents started out with one driving range mat in a field and built it up from there. In between cutting greens, fairways and raking Model, golfer and presenter Sophie Horn is a busy girl at the best of times. But now she's signed up to be ambassador for De Vere golf and promote their great new membership scheme alongside Freddie Flintoff and Harry Redknapp, it's even more difficult to get hold of her! However, More Magazine did manage to meet up with Sophie for a quick chat about her fast-paced life on and off the course, and here's what she had to say. Sophie fell in love with Buca di Beppo at VILLAGE hotels. Jump to page 8 to see how you can too!Sexy Sophie reveals all!bunkers I used to always hit balls! I come from a sporty family so always had the bug!What is it you like about the game?Golf is such a great social game, it brings people together, plus no two rounds are ever the same. There is something special in that, one day, you can be watching the world's top players on St Andrews and the next day you can be playing it - unlike when you watch Chelsea play, there's not much chance of kicking a football around Stamford Bridge! It's addictive, there's always that one little magic shot in a round which makes you keep going back!In such a male-dominated sport, what kind of reaction do you get from the men in your golf club?It's definitely got better over the years but certainly when I was younger, serving in the golf shop I never received the respect that the men in the shop would, even though I often knew more about the equipment and game. I still believe golf clubs have to change a little, there are still a few clubhouses that fall silent when a woman enters the building. I have always been quite a tomboy and actually prefer heading to the course with my male mates, a bit of banter makes it so much more fun! This is why I love the new De Vere Club membership, it's a more relaxed take on being part of a club.You're a model as well - what's a typical week in the life of Sophie Horn?I always like to make sure I'm busy. When I'm not travelling and have some time back home I make use of living next to a driving range and make sure I get to the gym at least 2-3 times a week. I've been very lucky to play lots of different courses this year, as well as watch a fair few tournaments. Photo-shoots are always fun, especially as they pretty much always have a golf element, I feel at home in front of the camera. I'm living the dream and I'm prepared to work for it 24/7!Which famous courses have you played around the world?Valderrama - simply awesome. The Carrick at Loch Lomond - by far the most beautiful course I've played, stunning views! 2012Interview with Sophie Horn
