A host of leading Premier League players have been invited to play at a special golf tournament in Las Vegas this summer.

Carlos Tevez, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard are among the names to receive an invitation for the Professional Footballers Golf Tournament, which will run over three days in June at the Shadow Creek course.

Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Gareth Bale, Joe Hart, James Milner, Daniel Agger, Phil Jones and David Beckham are also in the running to play at the event, according to the Daily Mail.

The tournament has been created by International Football Management, which is part of Chubby Chandler's sports agency.

A Ryder Cup-style format will see England take on the Rest of the World at the event for a trophy to be named after and presented by Lee Westwood.

IMG Media are believed to have won the right to televise the event.
