A stellar cast including 12 major champions took part in the Berenberg Gary Player Invitational at Wentworth, with Padraig Harrington inspiring his team to victory on Monday.

The legendary Tom Watson, Masters champion Danny Willett and two-time major-winner Martin Kaymer were among the players to contest the two-day event on the Player-designed Edinburgh Course.

And it was 'Team Harrington' who came out on top as over $150,000 was raised for Depaul, an organisation that helps homeless and vulnerable young people in London.

"It is an honour that so many of the game's great players came together for our union of golf and giving," said tournament host Player.

"The generosity on display during the gala dinner, alongside the ongoing support by our title sponsor Berenberg, continues to amaze me and we feel humbled to have helped such a wonderful and worthwhile cause in Depaul."
