“I meet actors all the time, so it’s something that I’m not that impressed by. But if I meet athletes, mate, it blows me away,” said Tom. “We’re on the 10th tee watching Tony Finau tee-off, and Ian Poulter just rocks up, gin and tonic in hand, and honestly, it was the highlight of my year. Just getting all the juicy golf goss … he definitely had a few gin and tonics. I’ll tell you that.”
