Big names commit to Dunhill Links event

British Open champion Ernie Els, Vijay Singh and Nick Price head a strong line-up for this year's Dunhill Links Championship, organisers announced on Wednesday.

Els, twice major winner Singh and former world number one Price are among a field of 168 professionals who will play in the European Tour's pro-am event from September 25-28.

They will be joined by defending champion Padraig Harrington, 2001 U.S. Open winner Retief Goosen and Australia's Stephen Leaney, who finished second behind Jim Furyk in last month's U.S. Open at Olympia Fields.

The $5 million event, being held for the third time, features an individual competition and a celebrity pro-am team event.

The unusual format played on three of Scotland's most famous links courses involves a professional playing with a celebrity amateur for 54 holes on the Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie and the Kingsbarns course.

After 54 holes, the leading 60 professionals and top 20 teams will play the final round at St Andrews.

Harrington won last year's title, edging out Argentina's Eduardo Romero at the second extra hole of sudden-death to secure the fifth European Tour title of his career.
