Hollywood actor Andy Garcia, former boxing world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and England cricket captain Joe Root are among the latest amateurs to confirm they are taking part in this week’s 20th anniversary of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championships in Scotland.

Also playing in the Pro-Am event are former AC Milan and Chelsea footballer Andriy Shevchenko, seven-time world snooker champion Stephen Hendry and former England cricketers Michael Vaughan and Darren Gough.

The professional line-up this week includes European Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington, three of his players, Tommy Fleetwood, Tyrrell Hatton and Shane Lowry, and vice-captains Luke Donald and Martin Kaymer.

Among the other big names in the field are defending champion Victor Perez, Billy Horschel, Danny Willett, Branden Grace and Scotland’s top-ranked player Robert MacIntyre, who leads a strong contingent of his compatriots including Grant Forrest and Calum Hill who have both been winners this year. 

Admission is free for spectators over the first three days, while final day tickets for the Old Course St Andrews on October 3 are available for £20 (concessions £15).

Because of covid regulations, spectator capacity on each course will be capped at 4,000 on each of the four days. Entry will only be permitted to ticket holders. Tickets will still be needed for the Thursday, Friday and Saturday, even though there is no charge.
