One of world’s most famous men set for Dunhill Links

Alfred Dunhill Links

The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship has pulled off a major coup by announcing that Justin Timberlake is to play in this year’s tournament.

The world-famous singer and actor will team up with former world No.1 Justin Rose at St Andrews, Kingsbarns and Carnoustie later this month.

Timberlake, 38, has won ten Grammy Awards, four Emmys, three Brit Awards and nine Billboard Music Awards.

Formerly a member of multiple platinum-selling boyband NSYNC, he was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2007 and 2013.
