From the Clubhouse: Snooker legend Shaun Murphy on his love for golf

February 16, 2022

There are only 11 snooker players who’ve won the career triple crown of World Championship, UK Championship, and Masters successes.

We're prepared to bet, though, there’s only one who has combined that with a 147 break (of which he’s had six), a 9-darter, and a hole-in-one.

Our guest this week is that person. Not only is Shaun Murphy one of the biggest stars of the green baize, he’s a talented golfer to boot – boasting a scratch handicap and a game good enough to get him into Open Championship qualifying.

He’s also a committed philanthropist – his charitable endeavours having raised huge sums over the course of his career for a number of good causes.

On the From the Clubhouse podcast we talk about his love of holing putts, his favourite courses, and whether he’s planning another crack at Claret Jug qualification as we get ready for the 150th Open at the Home of Golf.
