2014 Alfred Dunhill Links format

With a prize fund of $5 million, the Dunhill Links incorporates two separate competitions - an individual professional tournament and a team event in which the professionals are paired with amateur golfers.

Over the years, the tournament has attracted a strong international including major winners such as Rory McIlroy, Darren Clarke, Ernie Els and Sir Nick Faldo. Padraig Harrington, Martin Kaymer, Paul Lawrie and Louis Oosthuizen have also taken part in the recent past, as have Ryder Cup legends Colin Montgomerie and Lee Westwood.
"This is the 30th year in which Alfred Dunhill has supported golf in St Andrews."

Among the amateurs who have played regularly are film and TV stars Hugh Grant and Greg Kinnear, music legends Don Felder of the Eagles, Huey Lewis and Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres.

British sporting knights Sir Bobby Charlton and Sir Steve Redgrave, football legends Johan Cruyff and Ruud Gullit and former British tennis No 1 Tim Henman have also tested themselves at the Dunhill Links in years gone by.

This is the 30th year in which Alfred Dunhill has supported golf in St Andrews, beginning in 1985 with the Alfred Dunhill Cup, then from 2001 with the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
