Celebrities Primed for Open Invitational

Liverpool, England: Celebrity names and prominent influencers from the world of sport and entertainment will gather at Royal Liverpool on Sunday to compete in The Open Invitational.  
The event will feature a number of sporting superstars which includes England football internationals Jordan Pickford and Jermaine Jenas, NFL champion Victor Cruz, world-title winning boxer Tony Bellew and Indian international cricketer Yuvraj Singh.  
They will be joined by Hollywood actress Kathryn Newton, pop star Ronan Keating, actor and presenter of ITV’s ‘The Chase’, Bradley Walsh, and renowned influencers that include Blake GrayCalfreezy, Margaux Brooke and Marques Brownlee, who boast millions of followers on social media.  
The Open Invitational is being streamed live to a global audience via YouTube and TikTok (at 6 pm British Summer Time), while lucky ticket-holders for Sunday’s practice round will relish the chance to witness the action on-course and experience the atmosphere first hand. 
Everton and England goalkeeper Pickford said: “This is going to be a lot of fun and having the opportunity to play Royal Liverpool just days before The Open gets underway is really exciting. We’ll get to see the course in the same condition as the professionals do, which is a real honour. It will be a real challenge but one I’m looking forward to.”  
Expressing her love for golf, Newton said: “Golf has always been a passion of mine from a young age and I can’t wait to play Royal Liverpool alongside such incredible and talented people. 

“This event promises to be a unique experience for all involved and Team Newton will be out to do all that we can to get the win.” 
Looking to draw on his cricket experience, Singh said: “The chance to play at a prestigious Open venue is a real privilege and I’m excited to witness the challenges that the players face first-hand. I will try and draw on all my cricket experience to perform at my best and help my team get the win.”
The players will compete in three teams, led by Bellew, Cruz, and Newton, using a four-person scramble format over the back nine holes of Hoylake. The team with the lowest score will claim victory.  
Additionally, spectators can attend a closest-to-the-pin contest on the new championship par-three 17th hole, followed by a long drive competition on the par-five championship 18th hole.
