Stars from the world of golf joined other sports luminaries to raise over 450,000 Euros for various charities one year prior to the 2015 Solheim Cup. 22-time singles (and 1 doubles) tennis Major winner Steffi Graf joined golf stars Paula Creamer, Sandra Gal, Juli Inkster, Carin Koch, Caroline Masson, Caroline Larsson, Caroline Hedwall and reigning US Open champion Martin Kaymer in Germany.
