Gary Player will join former European Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie as part of a star-studded cast being lined up to appear at Golf Live in May.

Player, who won nine Majors, will be on hand to display his full array of talents in a variety of clinics and skills challenges at London Golf Club, Kent, from May 18-20, 2012.

“The world of golf is evolving all the time and I’m delighted to have been asked to be a part of Golf Live,” said Player.

“I love coming to the UK and to have the opportunity to interact with the crowd is very exciting.”

Golf Live offers visitors the opportunity to interact with the biggest names in golf and this year’s event – the third time it has been held – promises to be no exception.

Previous shows have featured Montgomerie, Ian Poulter, Darren Clarke, Paul Casey, Catriona Matthew, Carly Booth and a host of top coaches including David Leadbetter and Denis Pugh.

Golf Live will also feature the latest equipment from all the major manufacturers when British golfers will have the best opportunity this year to test more clubs than anywhere else.

Brands including TaylorMade, Callaway, Wilson, Cleveland, Mizuno, Yonex and Cobra have already signed up to the event and will showcase their equipment on the specially-constructed 30-bay driving range.

Tickets for Golf Live cost just £20 for adults while under 18s can get free entry. For more information or to buy tickets visit golfliveevent.com
