Golf: Stars in action at Manor

Aug 12 2005

Western Mail

 

Ospreys, Wales and Lions star Gavin Henson will join celebrities Catherine Zeta Jones, Chris Evans, Jodie Kidd and James Nesbitt in the European team for the celebrity All Star Cup over the August Bank Holiday weekend at Celtic Manor.

American sporting and entertainment celebrities, including Dallas star Patrick Duffy and film actors Michael Douglas and Rob Lowe, will provide the opposition at the 2010 Ryder Cup venue under non-playing captain Mark O'Meara. Colin Montgomerie leads the Europeans.

The event is the brainchild of Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, both keen golfers, and will be presented on Sky One by Kirsty Gallacher, Jamie Theakston and Terry Wogan.

Executive producer Bob Massie said, 'The players have now signed up and we are delighted with the calibre of names taking part.'

Montgomerie added, 'I have been involved, and very much enjoyed working on The All Star Cup from the outset and I look forward to captaining the European team.'

The All Star Cup will dominate the Sky One schedule over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Every shot will be covered and, unlike conventional golf tournaments, the All Star Cup coverage will offer enhanced access to the players and captains producing a major sporting occasion as a unique entertainment spectacle.

The event features a practice day on Saturday, August 27, followed by two days of competition on Sunday (greensomes) and Monday (fourballs).

All matches will be played over 18 holes to a modified matchplay format.

Teams: Europe: Boris Becker, Matt Dawson, Chris Evans, Gavin Henson, Ronan Keating, Jodie Kidd, Damian Lewis, Andrew Lincoln, James Nesbitt, Sir Steve Redgrave, Peter Schmeichel, Ian Wright, Catherine Zeta Jones

USA: Michael Chang, Michael Douglas, Patrick Duffy, Boomer Esiason, Kenny G, Steve Hytner, Cheryl Ladd, George Lopez, Rob Lowe, Cheech Marin, Haley Osment, Mark Spitz
