The Niggle: Who would be in your Dream Fourball?

We discuss who we'd have in our dream team

Lee Westwood recently announced that his old mates Ant & Dec would join Alan Shearer to be part of his BMW Pro Am side.

And Rory managing to convince Paul Scholes, Phil Neville and Niall of One Direction fame to be part of his Fourball at the BMW Pro-Am we look at who we would have in our ‘Dream Fourball’.

Damien Wilde (DW): I think personally you’d have to have some interesting characters rather than three of your idols. I’ve always been told never meet your heroes as they won’t live up to expectation.

Mark Townsend (MT): I couldn’t think of anything worse than the usual ‘celebrity’ partners!

Nick Suarez: Mark Viduka (I don’t even support Leeds – I’m from Stretford, Manchester), Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls. If only to find out what went down between those two.

Bobby van Wyk: Being from South Africa I couldn’t have anyone other than the Big Easy, Gary Player wasn’t really my era! So sorry Gary! Lord Alan Sugar – how many holes before he blew up? Final one would have to be James Corden. I’m just a big fan and I’m sure he’d lighten the mood!

Our top 10 tips for beginner golfers

Tom Lenton: Tiger Woods for certain then I’d have to have my dad, he doesn’t play golf so I can imagine it being good fun! And just because I’m feeling generous – I’d have Terry Wogan mainly for papa Lenton to have a natter – but of course we’d play a nice windy links to dislodge Wogan’s hairpiece…

Lee Jones: I’m all for the fun element. So as I’m ancient I’d have Bobby Davro, Russ Abbott and Bernie Clifton – with or without the Ostrich – not bothered!

MT: I would want a laugh, to not be overly intimidated by anyone else’s golfing ability and I wouldn’t want anyone to dominate the conversation. It would be nice to get a few pointers on how to properly chip and putt too! I want to meet my all-time heroes too so I’d go for: Gareth Edwards, David Gower and Ken Brown.

DW: Going against what I said I still think I’d have to have my all-time idol Zinedine Zidane, former Apple man Steve Wozniak and Kanye West – Kanye if only because he would be the most moody person of all-time. Reckon a #CheekyNandos would cheer him up though.

Alessa Hardwick: I’d have to pick Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and Miranda Hart. We’d probably just go to the pub though. As I think giving any of them a golf club would be quite dangerous.
