The Alfred Dunhill Links Team Championship 2015 is now underway at Carnoustie.

The Dunhill Championship is played over three of the world’s best known and respected links courses: The Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie Championship and the highly-regarded Kingsbarns Golf Links.

Professionals are paired with celebrated amateur golfers

With a prize fund of US$5 million, the championship incorporates two separate competitions – an individual professional tournament for the world’s leading golfers and a team event in which the professionals are paired with some of the most celebrated amateur golfers .

Over the next three days, former winner Branden Grace is partnering rock star Huey Lewis as they bid to regain their title against partnerships such as 2013 champion David Howell and Hugh Grant; Ronan Keating and Lee Westwood and Andy Garcia and David Horsey.

Another partnership to watch could be Danny Willett and Tim Henman, while football fans should head to St Andrews where Michael Ballack, Johan Cruyff, Alessandro del Piero, Ruud Gullit, Alan Hansen and Andriy Shevchenko are all in action.
