CELEBRITIES are among thousands expected to take part in a month-long charity golf tournament in honour of Spanish legend Seve Ballesteros who died last year.

‘Seve Day’ will see amateur golfers go head-to-head with professionals and famous faces including Harry Redknapp, Chris Eubank and Jeffery Archer to raise money for cancer research.

The event will culminate in a final at The Belfry on October 28, where finalists will be in with a chance of winning a trip to the US Masters.

To enter, competitors must play a qualifying round of 18 holes on any European course and submit their Stableford scores on the Seve Day site by July 31, with all results posted online.

The top 72 full handicap Stableford scores from across Europe will then be invited to play in the Seve Day final.

The event has been organised to raise money for the Seve Ballesteros Foundation, set up to help fight brain cancer, after the five-time Major winner died from the disease last May aged 54.

The Spaniard won the Open three times, the Masters twice and helped Europe win the Ryder Cup four times before captaining them to victory at Valderrama in 1997.
