Jim on fairway to heaven with Zeta

By Pauline Reynolds

28 August 2005

WHEN James Nesbitt finished filming Murphy's Law, little did he know his next starring role would be alongside Welsh beauty Catherine Zeta Jones!

Also on the bill are a host of other celebs including Michael Douglas, Ronan Keating, Jodie Kidd, Rob Lowe and Chris Evans.

But it's not a star-studded movie that they're all involved in.

Today they tee off to do battle on the fairways, in a charity golf tournament where Europe will take on the US in a celebrity version of the Ryder Cup.

But there'll be no late nights for James Nesbitt, who enjoys a healthy social life. And teams are under strict instructions from their captains - with coaching beginning at 7am.

The tournament is the brainchild of presenters Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, better known as Ant and Dec, who are both keen golfers.

Husband and wife, Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas, will be playing on opposing sides.

The stunning brunette has been picked to represent Europe while her husband will play for the American team.

Colin Montgomery is captaining the European stars while Mark O'Meara is heading up the US side in the two day event.

The golf legends will be coaching and supporting their teams, but neither will play in the tournament. It's being held on the Roman Roadcourse at the Celtic Manor in Newport, Gwent and will be televised on Sky One.

The teams will be made to feel at home with luxurious suites at the Celtic Manor Hotel, the host for 2010 Ryder Cup.

Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas will get the all-star treatment. The hotel's most luxurious accommodation is equipped with its own grand piano, private dining and bedrooms with en-suite marble bathrooms.

Guests can also request a butler service and even a pianist or harpist. Each celebrity has nominated their own charity to which they will donate any prize money and their share of proceeds from ticket sales.
