5 OCTOBER 2007

When Hollywood's king of cool Samuel L Jackson teed off in a celebrity golf tournament this week he set the usually sedate greens of Scotland's venerable Carnoustie club alight with a flamboyant display of fairway style.

Onlookers all but forgot about the drizzly weather at the Alfred Dunhill championship in Scotland when the 58-year-old Tinseltown star appeared in a sunshine yellow jumper and matching hat.

The Snakes On A Plane actor - whose passion for the game is such that he negotiates film contracts which allow him to play twice a week - turned out for another round in an equally eye-catching combination. On that occasion donning rust-hued trousers and a lime green, blue and yellow sweater.

Off the green there was nothing under par about his appearance either. At an evening social for competitors the actor teamed a stylishly cut blue top with one of his hallmark berets in denim.
