    The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship gives stars of sport and showbiz the opportunity to tee it up alongside European Tour golfers, but how would they cope when using old equipment?

    Ahead of this year’s contest at the ‘Home of Golf’, cricket legends Shane Warne and Michael Vaughan took on former football greats Jamie Redknapp and Ruud Gullit in a special golf challenge at St Andrews.

    The sporting pairs went head-to-head in a unique contest, where the two teams had to use hickory golf clubs synonymous with the early era of the sport.
