Nick Faldo, Jose Maria Olazabal, Colin Montgomerie and Sam Torrance are among the luminaries attending the funeral of Seve Ballesteros in the Spanish fishing village of Pedrena on Wednesday.
Ballesteros, the five-time major champion, died in his hometown on Saturday at age 54 of brain cancer.
The funeral will be at the church of San Pedro de Pedrena, which is expected to be filled to capacity.
Pedrena, populated by only 1,500, is embracing the world in saying goodbye to the golf great whose dazzling play and penchant for flair inspired a generation of players.
