As well as visiting TaylorMade’s custom-fitting tour truck the stars will be interviewed on the show’s stage and take part in the various interactive features including longest-drive and nearest-the-pin simulators and the 100ft putt.

Seaman, Stewart, Thorne and Spoony will be making their second appearances at the show after representing TaylorMade at the 2007 event.

Stewart was also full of praise for the show saying: “I think the show’s good. It’s nice to see what equipment’s around and how they update it. The number of people here shows golf is a very popular sport.”
