Music, gourmet food and drink and, oh yes, golf were the order of the day at the second Leuka Mini Masters hosted by Dougray Scott. The charity fund raiser, which cheekily bills itself as 'golf's 5th major meets the summer's best garden party', was won by Gabby Logan (pictured above left with husband Kenny), who defeated a field of celebrity competitors, including James Nesbitt (above right) at the brilliant Dukes Meadows par-3 course in Chiswick. The event, supported by Esquire, raises money for Leuka, the leukaemia charity based at London's Hammersmith Hospital.
With the emphasis firmly on fun, the celebrity captains and guests were able to take their minds off the summer showers with visits to on-course bars stocked by Veuve Clicquot, Auchentoshan single malt whisky, Steinlager and Red Bull, before feasting on Kiwi chef Peter Gordon's gourmet post-tournament barbeque. The evening entertainment was supplied by Rob Brydon, the hotly tipped Nell Bryden (no relation) and Starsailor frontman James Walsh. To view the final tournament scoreboard, click here.
