Brad Simpson, lead singer and guitarist for British band The Vamps, Dave Farrell from Linkin Park and Mike Rutherford, driving force of Genesis and Mike and the Mechanics, are the latest rock stars to announce they are playing in the upcoming Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

They join a super group of entertainment icons who have already confirmed they will be in the field, including multi-talented actor and musician Justin Timberlake, singer-songwriter Ronan Keating, Brian McFadden, former lead singer of Westlife, and hugely popular US legend Huey Lewis.

This is the first appearance in the Alfred Dunhill Links for 24-year-old Brad Simpson, from Sutton Coldfield near Birmingham, who plays golf at The Belfry when he is not touring.

Brad said: “This is going to be a very special experience, not just playing in a massive international event with the galleries watching everything I do, but playing on courses like Carnoustie and the Old Course, where they practically invented the game. I’m not sure how it’s going to compare to going on stage at a live concert, but I’m looking forward to finding out.”
