HOLLYWOOD actor Tom Holland best known for playing Spiderman will be making an appearance at a local golf event today.

The BMW PGA Championship Celebrity Pro-Am kicked off today at Wentworth Club, which borders Bracknell Forest and Windsor.

Tom will be joined by sibling Harry Holland, who is also an actor and budding director, having appeared in a number of films, including a cameo alongside older brother Tom in the forthcoming ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.

The A-lister said: “I can’t wait to play in the BMW PGA Championship Celebrity Pro-Am – I’ve heard it’s an amazing event. It should be a lot of fun, especially teaming up with Harry.

“Thousands of fans turn up to watch so I’m sure there’ll be a few nerves teeing it up on the 1st. I’ve been practicing shouting ‘Fore!’. On a serious note, what a fantastic opportunity; to play at Wentworth alongside some of the best golfers in the world. It doesn’t get much better than that.”

Liverpool and England footballers Adam Lallana and James Milner will also tee it up at the Virginia Water venue for the first time.

Other well known athletes include former Slovakian tennis star Daniela Hantuchová, who won the mixed doubles at Wimbledon in 2001, and former England cricketer James Taylor.

Meanwhile, a whole host of music artists will go head-to-head in the golf event with former One Direction star, Niall Horan eyeing up first place on the leaderboard. He'll be facing stiff competition from Irishmen Ronan Keating, Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy.

British TV presenter Helen Skelton is another celebrity making her BMW PGA Championship Celebrity Pro-Am debut, after being announced as the official winner of Slingsby Gin’s celebrity Golf Academy 2021.

To encourage more women to take up the sport, Slingsby Gin, with the support of Callaway Europe, challenged four female celebrities to master golf in just six months. Skelton won a nail-biting play-off to secure her spot on the day.

Skelton said: “I can't get over how irrationally addictive golf is, one minute you want to sell your clubs the next minute you want to play every day of the week. I can’t wait to get out there and enjoy the BMW PGA Championship Pro-Am.”

The BMW Championship Celebrity Pro-Am raises funds for a nominated Official Charity each year.

Kit Gartrell, championship director of the BMW PGA Championship, said: “We cannot wait to open the gates and welcome all the fans back to Wentworth Club for the BMW PGA Championship. The Celebrity Pro-Am is always a fantastic day, and once again it will be the perfect curtain-raiser for what is shaping up to be an amazing festival of world-class golf and entertainment.

“The Celebrity Pro-Am always draws huge crowds and is a real highlight for the fans, but with the BMW PGA Championship being the third Rolex Series event of the 2021 season and the final qualifying event for European players for this year’s Ryder Cup, there is going to be some unbelievable golf played out on the West Course, too.

“We have got Clean Bandit and Feeder performing live concerts on Saturday and Sunday respectively. The BMW PGA Championship has developed into a real family day out, offering fans the chance to enjoy a fantastic blend of world-class golf and entertainment in a relaxed and fun environment.”

The tournament itself gets underway on Thursday September 9.
