Dj Chris Evans Banned From Celebrity Golf Event24 July 2012
The Bbc Radio 2 presenter lined up alongside stars including actor Hugh Grant, Eagles rocker Don Felder, and former cricket ace Shane Warne for the pro-am Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland last year (11).
Evans and his golf pro partner Nick Dougherty triumphed with a score of 40 under par over four rounds - but their impressive scorecard caused "rumblings of dissent" and raised suggestions Evans' handicap of 10 was too high.
Now Evans has been told he will not be allowed to defend his title when this year's (12) event is staged in October.
He says, "Sadly, I will not be defending my title this year. Why? It transpires I've been barred for life. I could go into why but frankly it's all a bit of a bore. Suffice to say, if we were kids in the playground, the boy who owns the ball just took it home in a huff because his team didn't win."
Other stars who have previously taken part in the event include Michael Douglas and Samuel L. Jackson.
