Senior event unveils host of celebrities

Hollywood actor Kevin Costner, star of the golf film "Tin Cup", has assembled a star-studded line-up of celebrities for the Monte Carlo pro-am tournament he has helped to get off the ground on September 9-11.

The 54-hole Zepter Invitational featuring 44 European Seniors Tour players will include Sylvester Stallone, Roger Moore, Robert Wagner, Richard Branson, Boris Becker, ice hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, singer Michael Bolton, model Carol Alt and skiers Alberto Tomba and Ingemar Stenmark.

Costner, who will also be playing, is acting as co-chairman with Crown Prince Albert of Monaco.

Gary Player, Bernard Gallacher and Tommy Horton are among the golfers, and a charity auction during the event will include such prizes as a tennis match against Prince Albert, an afternoon water-skiing with Tomba and a day on the set of Costner's latest film production.

Costner has played with Tiger Woods in the Pebble Beach Pro-am, part of the US Tour, and is a 14-handicapper.

The film "Tin Cup" was all about a club professional's Jean Van de Velde-style near-miss at the US Open when he dumped shot after shot into a lake in front of the final green.
