The inaugural Hero Challenge introduces a new one-hole knockout match play contest which takes place two days before the start of the British Masters supported by Sky Sports, over a specially constructed par three on The Grove’s 18th hole.

Adding to the action will be a special one-hole celebrity shootout featuring TV personality Piers Morgan, singer Brian McFadden and cricketers Kevin Pietersen and Shane Warne.

Fans can be in the crowd for this unique event at The Grove by reserving FREE tickets via www.applausestore.com, while the contest will also be broadcast live from 7.30pm-8.30pm.

For the professionals, the winners from the four opening round matches will progress through to two semi-finals with the subsequent two winners contesting a final head-to-head match to decide the Hero Challenge champion. If the two opponents halve the hole, the outcome of that contest will be decided by the tee shot which was nearest to the pin.
