Featuring a star-studded line-up, the R&A Celebration of Champions gets underway on Monday, with defending champion, Collin Morikawa, striking the first tee shot at 15.05 (BST).

As names like Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Lee Trevino and Georgia Hall descend upon St Andrews, it is set to be a fantastic event. The four-hole team format sees teams of four take on the 1st, 2nd, 17th and 18th holes of the famous Old Course, with the best two scores on each hole counting for each team.
