There was no shortage of horseplay at the final practice session of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews yesterday.

AP McCoy might be retired, but the record-breaking jockey thought it might be a laugh to hitch a ride with playing partner, Portrush golfer Graeme McDowell, on the fairways.

Fifty Shades Of Grey star Jamie Dornan showed off his skills around the famous course, while Kevin Pietersen, Ruud Gullit and Michael Vaughan were others to try their luck.

Ireland rugby legend Brian O'Driscoll was clearly enjoying himself on the old course, as did Dungannon's 2011 Open winner Darren Clarke.
