Mini Masters 2015, the summer garden party and golf tournament all rolled into one, returned for its sixth year with an array of celebrity golfers gathered at Dukes Meadows, Chiswick, London

The par-3 golf tournament saw the biggest names in celebrity golf, including James Nesbitt, Jamie Theakston, Ronan Keating, Mark Foster and David Seaman, swing their clubs for Leuka, – the research charity into the causes and treatment of Leukaemia.

Celebrities have supported Leuka Mini Masters since the tournament started in 2008, with James Nesbitt describing it as “the best day of the year.” Mini Masters is a day of golf to remember, with its fun atmosphere, bars at every hole, music and a silent auction.

Dougray Scott, Leuka patron and event host, said: “Golf’s unofficial fifth major has returned for its best year yet: combining golf, music, hospitality and some unusually fantastic weather! Today we made fools of ourselves on the golf course to support a great cause, Leuka.”

Guests at the event bid for some fantastic auction prizes; James Nesbitt won an all expenses paid trip to The Masters Golf Tournament 2016 at the Augusta National Golf Club. He was also crowned the celebrity player of the day.

Sponsors of The Mini Masters 2015 included: Audemars Piguet, Asahi, Yourgolftravel, Fortnum & Mason and Wolsey.
