In this week's match for the Whyte and Mackay Scotch Trophy, former England skipper Kevin Keegan teams up with Tony Jacklin , while Sean Connery joins Gary Player.
Both celebrities enjoy plenty of practice in the warm sunshine of Spain. Kevin
Keegan lives only a few miles from Tony's San Roque golf course, and Sean Connery 's home in Aloa virtually overlooks the fairways. He even has a hole - 'El 007' - named after him.
For today's match though, it's back to the Scottish coast where Peter Alliss describes the action over nine selected holes of the Ailsa Course at the Turnberry Hotel.

The Million-Pound Grave
In the summer of 1939, three men from Suffolk made one of the greatest archaeological discoveries in the British Isles - the discovery of a spectacular hoard of royal regalia buried in the midst of the ghost outline of a great wooden ship. The Sutton Hoo treasure is now one of the show pieces of the British Museum and has been the subject of 20 years of analysis and research. First shown in August 1965, tonight's film brought Sutton Hoo to an immense audience. It is the unchanging and fascinating story of that incredible discovery as told by the excavators themselves - a timeless story which loses nothing in its retelling. Introduced by Sir David Wilson

A series of films about the way we live now. The Mighty Leek
Now spring is here, they're planting out championship leeks throughout Durham and Northumberland. It's a sport in which competition is keen and sabotage is a real threat.
And there is one event every leek man dreams of winning - The World Open Leek Championship.
Harry Bone , a retired shipbuilder, was last year's champion but he's a relative newcomer to leeks.
Can he and his wife Joan retain the title?
Joe Jones is 72, the grand old man of leek growing. Two years ago his crop failed. Will his old-fashioned methods help him regain the trophy? Bob Bell, once a pitman, has never won the show, but this year he expects great things from his WRSL (World
Record Super-Leek). While his wife Betty goes on holiday to Spain, Bob patiently watches his leek beds. Will this be Bob's big year? On the great day there are disasters and triumphs. And the drama does not end there....
