A teenager has been given a 10,000 diamond by radio and TV presenter Chris Evans to thank her for advice during a celebrity golf tournament.

Natalie Harrison, 17, caddied for Evans at the AllStar Cup at the Celtic Manor in Newport on the bank holiday weekend.

Evans won the Russian Kristall Smolensk diamond for his play and gave it to the caddy from Rhuddlan Denbighshire.

Natalie said: "I just said no but he said 'You deserve it'. He's making it into a necklace for me."

The teenager was one of 20 young people picked to caddy at the event, which boasted a host of celebrities including Hollywood A-listers Catherine Zeta Jones and husband Michael Douglas.

She has played golf since the age of four and is a member of Rhuddlan Golf Club, where she recently won the club's ladies title.

With a handicap of five, Natalie has been picked for the Welsh under-18s team.

In addition to meeting the celebrities at the tournament, Natalie was able to rub shoulders with some top golfing talent, including Scot Colin Montgomerie, who captained the winning Europeans.

But it was Natalie's advice on what shots to take that impressed Evans enough for him to pass on the diamond prize he won for being voted the tournament's top player.

She said: "On one hole he asked me the line of the putt and I told him it. He called Monty (Montgomerie) over and Monty said exactly the same spot."

"He (Evans) is really good. He was supposed to play off (a handicap of) 15 but he played a lot better than that on most of the rounds."

Around 20,000 spectators watched the tournament, which took place on the Roman Road course of the Celtic Manor Resort, which will host the Ryder Cup in 2010.
