The event organizers have also issued a cautionary note for the audience members who are interested in watching the game.

With the fluid nature of celebrities’ schedules, some confirmations may be at a future date, and some late changes can be expected.” Since the tournament includes non-professional Golf players, the tournament is expected to undergo last-minute changes and you may or may not see your favorite star despite an early declaration.
