Greats of golf meet silver screen  legends

While at Mission Hills, Iain Roberts was tournament director for two editions of the biennial World Celebrity Pro-Am, a glamorous tournament where the biggest names in golf were paired with stars of other sports and celebrities from stage and screen. As a mixed tournament, women golfers were to the fore and legends such as Lorena Ochoa of Mexico, Sweden’s Annika Sörenstam and South Korea’s Pak Se-ri – a trio with 124 LPGA Tour victories between them – graced the inaugural tournament. Later editions featured elite professionals such as Norway’s Suzann Pettersen, Maria Balikoeva of Russia, India’s Sharmila Nicollet and Diana Luna from Italy. Leading ladies of the silver screen who graced the Mission Hills fairways at Haikou on the tropical island of Hainan included Nicole Kidman (pictured with playing partner Ian Poulter), Catherine Zeta-Jones, Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Cheung and Jessica Alba (pictured, centre of group, with elite professional Danielle Montgomery, John Daly, musician Kenny G and Greg Norman).
