The Black Knight will be giving the benefit of all his expertise and experience to fans at Golf Live, from May 18-20 at the London Golf Club, England, alongside a host of other star names.
The nine-time Major and Senior Tour Major winner will be on hand to display his full array of talents in a variety of clinics and skills challenges as well as meeting visitors and signing autographs throughout the three-day golfing extravaganza.
Ryder Cup winning captain Colin Montgomerie and European Tour winners Thomas Levet, Pablo Larrazabal, Oli Fisher and Rhys Davies will be among the other Tour stars showing off their skills at the event, while Solheim Cup captain Alison Nicholas and Ladies European Tour players Melissa Reid and Carly Booth will be representing the women’s side of the game.
Player said: “The world of golf is evolving all the time and I’m delighted to have been asked to be a part of Golf Live. I love coming to the UK and to have the opportunity to interact with the crowd is very exciting.”
As well as meeting and learning from the big-name golfers, golf fans will have a host of interactive features to enjoy including free golf lessons; club-fitting; the opportunity for a Golf Monthly swing MOT; stunning displays from the 2010 world long-drive champion Joe Miller and world-renowned trick-shot artists Jeremy Dale and Paul Barrington.

Virgin Atlantic flights are among big prizes available to be won in daily competitions, including long-drive, nearest the pin, putting and events in association with the Seve Ballesteros Foundation and Scotland – the Home of Golf.
