"The course is in great nick and Jack certainly did this hole justice!! #golf @wimbledonparkgolfjunioracademy," continued Ben. It seems the father-and-son duo were enjoying some time away from their home amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Earlier this month, the UK government revealed new relaxed rules including the re-opening of golf courses.

Ben and his wife Annie share two sons
Ben, 45, recently gave a very honest account about his time in lockdown with his wife Annie and their two sons Jack and Sam, 13. Claiming he feels a "sense of guilt" for relishing every moment he is having with his loved ones, Ben said on BBC Radio 5 Live: "In amongst this horrific virus that is ripping families apart, when it all started in the first few weeks there was a sense of guilt because there was a special moment when you thought, 'how often do we get to have everybody at home, there's an easing of pressure with work commitments, the weather is lovely.'"

He also explained how there has been tension in the house with his teenage sons. "Jack is much smaller, but he is the emotional one and the one who will explode," he explained. "Sam is a lot more gentle. Often, if there's anything physical, it will come from Jack. They're good mates and they’re pretty different." He continued: "Having boys is like having dogs. You just need to run them every day. If they're stuck inside every day, the built-up energy is extraordinary. As long as they feel like they've been able to exercise, then I'm very content with how that comes about."
