Actor Tom Felton collapsed on the 18th hole at Whistling Straits on Thursday ahead of the Ryder Cup and had to be carted off the course due to a medical emergency.
Felton, the British actor best known for playing Draco Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” franchise, was participating in the celebrity event ahead of the Ryder Cup.
It’s not clear specifically what caused Felton to collapse, though he was conscious when he was carted off. He is being treated at a local hospital.
