The 2010 Leuka Mini Masters sponsored by Bing and hosted by Dougray Scott held its launch party at London's May Fair Hotel on May 26.

The event welcomed its guests to the penthouse suite where a unique artificial putting green supplied by Huxley Golf was supplied on the balcony, in order for guests to try and win an Omega Seamaster watch.

The Mission Impossible star Scott, who appears in the forthcoming episode of Father and Son, was the only individual to hole out in the penthouse putt-off. Sadly his efforts were only successful during the practice stages, and couldn't be repeated in the competition itself.

Whilst the guests queued up to face the monstrous 35ft putt, there was an abundance of activity supplied in order to ensure maximum entertainment. With live music from a jazz band dressed in white caddie's boiler suits to cocktails from Chase Vodka, shots of chilled Jagermeister, bottles of chilled Steinlager, champagne and a delicious BBQ courtesy of The Cinnamon Club.

The guest list included actress Claire Forlani, T4 presenters Jameela Jamil, Rick Edwards and Miquita Oliver, Law and Order's Jamie Bamber, Starsailor singer-song-writer James Walsh and comedian Kayvan Novak.

All proceeds from the evening went to Leuka. As a winner could not be determined for the putting competition, it shall continue on Friday, July 16 at Dukes Meadows in Chiswick, where the main tournament will be played.
