The best part, Tom broke into song while discussing the incident with fans and said, “Don’t you worry, Tom will be doing fine.”
Interestingly, Felton didn’t specifically address what happened on the course. It appears Tom might have just been dehydrated or felt light-headed considering he appears to be totally fine this weekend.
The incident followed Tom reflecting on his 34th birthday, earlier in the week, when he posted on Instagram “Good lord it’s been so much fun getting here – yet, somehow, I still feel the best is yet to come – thank you all for your love, support & sense of humor – let’s keep a good thing going – to the next 33 xx.”
