A passionate golfer, Tom will perform a range of his classic alternative indie hits at St Andrews as the competition reaches its culmination. He is appearing in the Fan Festival Village which will be located on the Balgove Course.

Grennan said, “I absolutely love my golf, so it’s going to be class performing at the AIG Women’s Open this summer at St Andrews! I spend way too much time out on the course so it’s nice to be able to put those two passions together. St Andrews is the one too - the most historic course in the world! It’s going to be epic.

“The women's game is in a really exciting place right now with the likes of Nelly Korda, Rose Zhang coming through and Charley Hull representing the UK all in the top ten. I can’t wait to watch the best in the world competing at St Andrews. If I wasn't performing I'd be there watching or glued to my TV anyway!"
