Earlier in the week we reported that Philip had competed in the BMW PGA Pro-Am competition in aid or Shooting Star CHASE. Well, on Saturday he returned to Wentworth to take in some golf and to be put through his paces in 'Cotter's Questions' alongside golfer Justin Rose.
BBC sports broadcaster Andrew Cotter interviewed both stars and they also took questions from the audience.
Thanks to Blaine Conway (@BlaineyC) we are able to bring you a short video of Philip answering two questions; one about 'Life on Mars' and one about the day in the life of an actor. We recommend viewing this video in full screen.
We are delighted to be able to bring you two new videos from the upcoming series of Mad Dogs.
The first is a second trailer which, be warned, contains more spoilers than the first one. The second is a preview clip from series 3, episode 4 in which tensions run high between the four-some as they discuss what could have been and whose fault it was that they have ended up where they are.
Both videos can be seen on our dedicated Mad Dogs Videos page. (Scroll down to series 3.)
On Wednesday, Philip joined a host of other celebrities to play in the Pro-Am curtain raiser to this week's PGA tournament at Wentworth in support of Shooting Star CHASE. Also present were Jamie Redknapp, Andrew Strauss, Chris Robshaw and Theo Walcott plus another Shooting Star patron Chris Evans.
The amateurs were challenged to take part in a ‘hit the green’ competition on the 14th hole, a tough, uphill par 3 in return for a donation to the charity, which was generously supported by all the players.
The winners of the competition were Ian Poulter, Ian Botham and Jamie Carragher and Ian Wright, with a five shot win and a total of 20 under par. Tied for second were the teams of 2006 BMW PGA Champion David Howell, and 2013 Open de Espana winner Raphael Jacquelin.
The event raised more than £150,000 for Shooting Star CHASE, with £20,000 coming from each professional golfer donating their appearance fees. Find out more about the fantastic work that Shooting Star CHASE does on their official website.
Sky have released the finalised press pack for Mad Dogs series three.
The press pack contains interviews with the four main stars plus Jaime Winstone. We have added Philip's interview to our Mad Dog's articles section, but beware it does contain spoilers so don't read if you don't want to know what happened.
The BMW PGA Championship has today announced the teams for Wednesday’s highly anticipated Celebrity Pro-Am competition taking place at Wentworth Club, Surrey in support of charity, Shooting Star CHASE.
Each professional golfer is teamed up with a celebrity (some with more than one!), and Philip has been teamed with German golfer, Marcel Siem who has been on the European Tour since 2002 and won their 'Golfer of the Month' in March this year.
There will be two sessions of play on Wednesday and Philip will be playing in the afternoon session, which is due to kick off at 13.30
Here are the teams for the afternoon session:
This year’s Celebrity Pro-Am will also see the introduction of a fun new rule: “Use Your Pro”. This new feature gives amateur players the opportunity to call on their professional team-mate to play them out of trouble. At least that is the theory! Each amateur is entitled to “Use Your Pro” once in the round and can call on their ‘Pro’ whenever they want; whether it be in an emergency, as the result of a wayward shot, or tactically, to get it up on the green on some of the longer, trickier Par Threes.
We're not really up on golf here at PhilipGlenisterFans but we hope Philip will not be at a disadvantage because he is on his own with a professional.
