The Stand guides you through the golf tournament’s most distinguished guests.

For the benefit of Freshers, the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship comes to St Andrews every October. It’s a fairly major golf tournament, open to professionals and amateurs, and if golf is your thing it’s a great chance to watch some of the world’s greats play in the home of golf.

For the rest of us however, the Dunhill is basically the only time when you’re likely to see somebody more famous than Pat Mathewson in this wee town, and this therefore makes it acceptable to swoon over slightly sleazy celebrities old enough to be our dads. Here’s a list of this year’s, ahem, talent:

 Retired German footballer Michael Ballack

 Former England cricketers Sir Ian Botham, Michael Vaughan and Allan Lamb

 Former Dutch footballers/managers Johan Cruyff and Ruud Gullit

 Eagles’ guitarist Don Felder

 Retired Portuguese footballer Luís Figo

 Britain’s pre-Andy Murray tennis hero Tim Henman

Huey Lewis of Huey Lewis and the News

 Former Irish rugby player Brian O’Driscoll

 British rowing champion Sir Steve Redgrave

 Aussie cricketer Shane Warne

 Boyzone star Ronan Keating

And of course, the infamous Hugh Grant. Good luck ladies, but remember, he’s 55.
