Former England defender turned media pundit Danny Mills is just one of the high-profile celebrities confirmed to play in the Pro-Am at the Welcome to Yorkshire Ian Woosnam Senior Invitational.

He will be joined at Ilkley Golf Club on Thursday September 16 by Olympic medallist Nile Wilson, the Leeds gymnast who created history at Rio 2016 when he became the first Briton to claim an Olympic medal on the horizontal bar, winning bronze. He also has European, World and Commonwealth honours to his name.

Rugby League legend Danny McGuire will also take his place alongside 1991 Masters champion Woosnam and some of the biggest names in European senior golf.

After the Covid-19 pandemic robbed the event of spectators in the inaugural event last September, golf fans in the county can now take advantage of a special entry fee of £5 per person plus booking fee for the tournament day on Friday September 17.

Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite and the price includes a free drink on the day.

Along with host Ian Woosnam they can see some of Europe’s top senior golfers including fellow Ryder Cup captain and Ilkley member Mark James. Debutants in this year’s event include European Tour winners Simon Khan and Raymond Russell, while Liam Bond will be back to defend his title after lifting the trophy with a round of 65 last September
