Calum Hill and Jordan Smith were both feeling good about their chances of winning the 2021 Cazoo Classic despite being outgunned by Rasmus Højgaard on day three at London Golf Club.

“Definitely a game of two halves. You just look at the colours on the scorecard. It couldn’t have been more different, couldn’t have done anything wrong on the front nine and couldn’t do much right on the back nine. But I hung in there, we’re still in it. I had a lot of fun out there actually which was nice so I’m just going to continue that attitude into tomorrow. It’s key to be patient. You saw Rasmus out there shooting a good score early doors, so you know there’s a score out there but you just have to stay patient. I feel good. I’m going to clip a few to stay on top of things but I’m feeling really good, I’m liking where my game’s at”.

Solheim Cup organizers and BMW announced the creation of the BMW Celebrity Match during the week of the 2021 Solheim Cup, which will take place at Inverness Club from August 31 – September 6 in Toledo, Ohio. The celebrity match will be held on Thursday, September 2 at 2 p.m. at Inverness Club, with celebrities and players battling for the inaugural crown.

“We are excited to be able to bring the BMW Celebrity Match at the Solheim Cup to life during event week,” said Solheim Cup tournament director Becky Newell. “The match was designed with fans in mind as a way to elevate the experience for those attending the Solheim Cup, and we’re looking forward to watching these players try their hand at Inverness Club as a kickoff to one of women’s golf’s most distinguished team events.”

The celebrity match will have two teams teeing off No. 10 in a scramble format. Three-time U.S. Solheim Cup team captain and 31-time LPGA Tour winner, Juli Inkster, and six-time U.S. Team member and major champion Morgan Pressel are among the participants, as well as Radio Hall of Fame host and former NFL defensive lineman, Mike Golic. 

One of the teams will also be captained by none other than multi-Platinum selling and three-time GRAMMY Award-winning country artist, Darius Rucker. 

“The Solheim Cup is a prestigious event that I always enjoy watching as a fan of great golf,” said Rucker. “I’m honored to be on the same course as these talented players and can’t wait for some friendly competition in the celebrity match!”.
