The well-known match between the USA team and Europe team, better known as the Ryder Cup, is not only played by pro golfers but a group of celebrity golfers as well!  This competition is called “The All Star Cup” held at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport and gives all celebs the chance to come out and play!

The All Star Cup was held in 2005 as well as 2006 and I think it is time for the celebrities to come out and play again. In 2005 the tournament ended dramatically, with the result only decided on the 18th hole of the final day when Ronan Keating and Damain Lewis won the hole against Michael Douglas and Mark Spitz.  The Europe team walk away winners with a score of 91 – 89.  Michael Douglas unfortunately competed on the losing team while his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones played on the winning team.

The next year Europe won the cup again.  This time the legendary Bruce Forsyth hold the winning putt, at age 78 and with that, they named the team after him and called it the “Golfer father” .
