Holey Moley’s Graham Furness, 71, struggles to pick himself back up after being dramatically knocked out by a windmill on the extreme golf show

A 71-year-old contestant suffered a nasty fall on Tuesday’s episode of Holey Moley.

Graham Furness was completing one of the brutal courses on Channel Seven’s extreme miniature golf show when he was knocked straight off his feet. 

The self-confessed ‘military brat’ was tasked with navigating his way through the blades of a windmill or run the risk of being knocked out into a bed of tulips below.

After misjudging the gap in the windmill, Graham took a big hit and was knocked off his feet before being sent flying into the tulips below. 

‘Ohhh! Big G took a big fall,’ said commentator Rob Riggle, before Graham’s concerned opponent, Taylor, asked: ‘Is he up?’ 

As Graham struggled to pick himself up off the ground, a couple of crew members rushed over to help him.

Shaking off his dramatic fall, a clearly shaken Graham said: ‘That was ridiculous.’

Fellow commentator Matt Shirvington insisted that Graham was ‘fine’ as the contestant returned to the course. 

But as he prepared to take his next shot, Graham lost his footing when part of the set fell out from under him, and he fell once again.

A clearly apprehensive Graham had to navigate his way through a second windmill, and said: ‘Not the mill again.’

After hesitating, Graham then headbutted one of the windmill’s blades, before being knocked back into the tulips.
