On Friday, Philip took part in the Mini Masters - a golf tournament hosted by Dougray Scott, in aid of the cancer charity, Leuka. In this tournament teams pay a fee to have a celebrity play with them. Alas, Philip's team didn't win. Other celebrities involved this year included James Nesbitt, Tim LoveJoy, and Denise Van Outen.
The total amount of money raised has not yet been announced - we will bring it too you when we know.

Yesterday was a busy day for the stars of Outcast as they spent their third day at San Diego Comic Con and took part in several big interviews and panels.
Big names on the interview list were CBR, SiriusXM and Entertainment Weekly. They also joined Nerdist on stage to take part in a panel.
After that they headed straight to the Outcast booth to check out the merchandise and sign some autographs before taking part in their own dedicated Outcast Panel. On the panel were, Rober Kirkman (creator), Patrick Fugit (Kyle), Philip (Rev Anderson), Wrenn Schmidt (Megan Holter), Reg E Cathey (Chief Giles) and Chris Black (showrunner). There was also a cameo appearance by Gabriel Bateman, who plays Joshua in the pilot episode.
We are expecting a video of the panel to surface in the next few days (they usually do) but while we wait for that, here are some of Philip’s reported highlights.
Phil introduced himself to the crowd with a thinly-veiled barb at the current political climate in Britain.
I’m from Brexiit, I mean, Little England...This is my first excursion to American TV, and I've been made very welcome
Phil then talked about making the show and his character's dynamic with Kyle Barnes, who turns out to be a natural at dealing with the supernatural.
The pilot exorcism took 2 days to shoot and was probably my favourite possession scene.
When Reg E Cathey suggested that Season 2 should see the characters uprooted to the Bahamas, Phil added:
I'll set up a missionary shop or something.
A fan asked, How did Anderson and Giles become friends? Reg E Cathey said that in his mind, the two met as children.
I have dear friends of mine that I grew up with in Alabama, that I've fused Philip and my friend Francis or Ken together... and so I think that their relationship, I'm dancing over stuff that's going to come, but their relationship is built on adolescent fun, danger, trust and the trust that comes out of being young and stupid and learning from your youth and stupidity
Cinemax also debuted a brand new trailer for the remaining episodes of Outcast, which you can view below.

This weekend, Philip is playing in the Celebrity Cup, a two-day charity golf tournament which pits teams of celebrities from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland against each other. Philip is Team Wales (the reigning champions) due to his mother's Welsh heritage.
In the first round, Wales were drawn against Ireland and Philip was paired with BBC rugby commentator, Jonathan Davis against the stars of Mrs Brown's Boys, Brendan and Danny O'Carroll.
Philip had a great start to his match (as you can see from the video below) and he and Jonathon went on to win the match for Wales, 7 holes to 2.
After lunch, however, their luck began to run out. Paired with Gethin Jones and pitted against a Scottish team of Michael Jamieson and Greig Laidlaw, both Welshmen made a couple of double bogeys which ultimately cost them their second round match. (It finished 6 holes to 3.)
Here's how things stand at the end of day 1 - Wales need to come up with something special on day 2 to have any hope of retaining their title.

Philip appeared on this morning's episode of Sunday Brunch on Channel 4 to talk about Outcast.
As well as promoting Outcast, he was asked what his favourite film about football was. He said that it wasn't a film but a scene in Kes - Brian Connelly pretending to be Bobby Charlton. While on the subject of movies, Philip also revealed that while filming Outcast, he visited the Studio Movie Grill in Charlotte - where you have a folding airplane style table and press a button to call a waiter. He ordered a burger, chips and a pint. He was “happy as larry".
Film critic Mark Kermode, who was also in the show, was outraged. “Was there no part of you that though you should be concentrating on the film?”
Phil replied, “It’s Bond!”
This lead Kermode to joke that, “that answer is why you’re not in the running to play Bond!"
Philip joined in with eclair and brandy tasting and helped to make the shows dessert - a honey, ricotta and raisin cake.
