The full field and draw for the R&A's Celebration of Champions has now been revealed, with a host of the game's biggest names set to kick off what promises to be an epic week of action in St Andrews.

Starting from 3pm today, fans attending The 150th Open will be able to marvel as a star-studded line-up of past Champion Golfers, women’s Major Champions, male and female amateur champions, and golfers with disability champions compete over the 1st, 2nd, 17th and 18th holes of the famous Old Course.

The first two groups revealed last Friday will be joined by some of the world’s most prominent golfers across the sport, including five-time Open champion Tom Watson, four-time women’s major champion Dame Laura Davies and Sir Nick Faldo, winner of three Opens, the second of which came at St Andrews in 1990.

Tiger Woods is last out at 4.55pm local time alongside Rory McIlroy, Lee Trevino and Georgia Hall.

Also featuring in the field are Kipp Popert, who won the EDGA Hero Open at Fairmont St Andrews last year, Juan Postigo Arce and Monique Kalkman-van den Bosch. Popert also became the first golfer with disability to play in The Amateur Championship at Royal Lytham & St Annes and St Annes Old Links last month.

Amateur champion Aldrich Potgieter will play alongside fellow South African and two-time Open champion Ernie Els, while last year’s Women’s Amateur champion Louise Duncan tees it up with Padraig Harrington, Catriona Matthew and Francesco Molinari.

In total, there are 10 four-person teams that will play four of the most famous holes in golf. For those unable to be there in person, here's how to watch the R&A Celebration of Champions.

A lifelong golf fan, Andy graduated in 2019 with a degree in Sports Journalism and got his first role in the industry as the Instruction Editor for National Club Golfer. From there, he went on to enjoy a spell freelancing for Stats Perform producing football reports, and then for RacingNews365 covering Formula 1. However, he couldn't turn down the opportunity to get back into the sport he grew up watching and playing and now covers a mixture of equipment, instruction and news for Golf Monthly's website and print title.

Andy took up the game at the age of seven and even harboured ambitions of a career in the professional ranks for a spell. That didn’t pan out, but he still enjoys his weekend golf at Royal Troon and holds a scratch handicap. As a side note, he's made five holes-in-one and could quite possibly be Retief Goosen’s biggest fan.

As well as the above, some of Andy's work has featured on websites such as goal.com, dailyrecord.co.uk, and theopen.com.
