Botham and Clarke club up for two day charity golfing feast

SPORTING legends Sir Ian Botham and Darren Clarke teed up a global gathering of the celebrity and business elite at the Archerfield Links in Scotland to take part in a golfing charity fundraiser – raising over £500,000 for charity.

The Pro Am invitational, which raises money for Botham and Clarke’s charities, “Beefy’s Charity Foundation” and “The Darren Clarke Foundation”, saw a wealth of talent from the business and sporting world mingle over two days to raise money for the two charities. Richemont global chief executive Johann Rupert, billionaire Ernesto Bertorelli and Irish business tycoon Dermot Desmond were among many out in force to represent the business world. Players also included sporting greats Shane Warne, Michael Vaughan, Kenny Dalglish and Jamie Rednapp. Out on the green, talk veered from golf to cricket, with Botham on hand to give his cricketing insights.
