Stars from around the world of rugby descended on the Celtic Manor for the Sir Gareth Edwards Charity Golf Day but it was a professional golfer who showed his nous around the Twenty Ten Course to lead the winning team.
European Tour star Gary Boyd prevailed over the likes of Zinzan Brooke, Xavier Rush, Mike TIndall, Scott Quinnell and Martyn Williams to skipper a victorious quarter entered by Mike Lewis to celebrate his 50th birthday.

The event and its presentation dinner with charity auction was in aid of the Cardiff Institute for the Blind, which is proud to have Sir Gareth as its President.
Lots in the charity auction included a signed Wales football shirt from Gareth Bale, the man whose goals and performances inspired Wales to qualification for Euro 2016, and a rugby jersey signed by the newly-crowned world champions, New Zealand.
Other celebrities to take part included Olympic sprinter Christian Malcolm and football legends Kevin Ratcliffe and Alan McInally.
As part of the entertainment at dinner, Max Boyce gave a comic response to an impromptu haka performed by former All Black No 8s Zinzan Brooke and Xavier Rush, and BBC commentator Ian Robertson amused the audience with some choice anecdotes. Sir Gareth said:
It's been a wonderful day with some fantastic weather and we've raised a lot of money for a cause which is very important to me. I'd like to thank all the celebrities for giving their time so generously to support this event.
A new date of Thursday 29th September has already been confirmed for next year's Sir Gareth Edwards Golf Day. More details can be found here.
