Known for his iconic portrayal of Draco Malfoy, member of Slytherin house in the Harry Potter film series, Tom Felton had a hectic afternoon last Thursday, as he collapsed at the end of a celebrity golf match and was subsequently carried off. The event took place at a Sheboygan, Wisconsin course known as Whistling Straits ahead of the Ryder Cup, which began last Friday.
The 34-year-old actor was a member of the European team, competing with the U.S.
Felton released a message to social media on Saturday, the 25th, assuring fans that he was fine after the sudden collapse. In an Instagram video, he told viewers he was “on the mend” following the incident.

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the lovely well wishes as of recent,” he said. “Yeah, it was a bit of a scary episode, really. I’m on the mend. People have been looking, taking really good care of me, so thank you very much for messages of ‘get well soon,’ because I am on the mend, officially.” He then played his guitar and broke out into a song, telling all, “Don’t you worry, Tom will be doing fine.”
