altDUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The ICONS Cup — a first-of-its-kind, two-day, team competition taking place April 22-24 at Jumeirah Golf Estates’ Earth Course — announces Captain Darren Clarke has selected a cadre of soccer, rugby, cricket and Olympic legends as members of his Rest of the World (ROTW) team.

Stepping off the pitch and onto the fairways will be club and international soccer stars Luís Figo, Robbie Fowler, Andriy Shevchenko and Dwight Yorke. They’re joined by rugby idols George Gregan, Brian O’Driscoll and Mike Tindall, MBE; renowned cricketers Brian Lara and Shane Warne; and five-time Olympic gold medal rower Sir Steve Redgrave.

Rounding out Clarke’s 12-man Team ROTW will be two additional icons to be named separately. The event format will mirror that of a Ryder Cup spectacle for the Northern Irishman, who just last week was named Captain of Europe’s 2016 Ryder Cup squad.

The ad — shot in super slow motion and to a haunting Mozart soundtrack – features US Open Champion Martin Kaymer hitting a bunker shot to the 18th green of the DP Tour World Championship, Dubai; a shot which literally entrances everyone watching.
