Forget The Open: next week’s most entertaining golf will be found in leafy west London, rather than Royal St George’s.
The Leuka Mini Masters — which raises funds for the research and treatment of leukaemia — tees off on 15 July and will see the UK’s most famous part-time golfers going head to head for a great cause. Hosted by actor Dougray Scott, the contest pits teams of well-known putting enthusiasts against one another under the captaincy of James Nesbitt, former footballer Gianluca Vialli (pictured) and more.
