Celebrity golfer Tom Felton was carted off the Whistling Straits course Thursday in Haven after suffering an apparent medical event. The actor, who just turned 34 years old Wednesday, was conscious.
Felton, born in Surrey, England, is best known for portraying the villainous Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movie series and was competing with the Europe team in the celebrity showcase one day before the start of the Ryder Cup. His other screen credits include the TV series “The Flash” and movie “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.”
Spectators gave Felton applause as he headed away for treatment. There is no immediate word on his condition.
