Sept. 25-Oct. 1, 2023 Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, Rome, Italy

Aberdeen Standard Investments presents the third episode from the behind-the-scenes Ryder Cup series, as Anna Whiteley and Alexandra O’Laughlin take us inside the ropes at the Celebrity Match.

Ahead of Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and company taking to the Le Golf National fairways, some of the most famous names outside of golf had their chance to impress in a star-studded, a-list affair. 

While the likes of One Direction's Niall Horan, former footballers Luis Figo and Alessandro Del Piero and Hollywood luminary Jamie Dornan represented the European celebrity side, the United States had big names such as actor Samuel L Jackson, 11-time surfing World Champion Kelly Slater and Olympic legend Michael Phelps in their ranks.

With exclusive access on the range and out on the course, we spoke to many of those celebrities playing and, importantly, saw exactly what they had in their golfing locker.



All week we are collaborating with Worldwide Partner of the Ryder Cup, Aberdeen Standard Investments, to bring you the best of the behind the scenes action from Le Golf National.
