Written By GingersnapComments Off on Damian Lewis Enjoys Some Golfing in Wales
Ace in the Hole
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | August 26, 2023
This weekend Damian was spotted in the Welsh countryside of Llandybie near Llandeilo, Wales at the Glynhir Golf Club, stopping in at the golf course’s Pro Shop. Is it me, or is his hair blonder? Perhaps some highlights for a new role or his current vampy role as the malevolent and alluring Uncle Will in the vampire comedy, The Radleys. Or maybe the lighter locks are a result from all that fun in the sun from his recent vacation in St Tropez.
Damian has shared many times over that he loves going to Wales. From history we know Damian’s North Walian father Watcyn and his grandparents were all Welsh, so he has links to the area having been a regular visitor since his youth. Holidays and weekends were spent either in Llandeilo or around the beaches of Porthmadog, celebrating St. David’s Day was a childhood event and the Welsh team was the only one to back in rugby. The family has a second home there, which they have occupied in Llandeilo for more than 40 years.

It didn’t take long for Damian to get back into the swing of it as he played the BMW PGA Celebrity Pro-AM golf competition at Wentworth Club in Virginia Water, Surrey, United Kingdom today, Wednesday, May 23. Teeing off at 1:15 pm, Damian returned to the West Course with golf professional “The Great Dane” Thomas Bjorn, along with lead singer and guitarist for the British pop/rock band The Vamps, Bradley Simpson and Italian-British actor Luke Pasqualino.
Damian received some useful golfing tips from Sky Sports presenter Nick Dougherty before he teed off. Dougherty analyzed his swing as he took his driver out on the range and suggested a few improvements before he headed to the course. You can watch that video here if it’s authorized in your viewing area. And guess who made SkySports FanVan? You can see Damian in this video at 2:46 in.

Wolf Hall meets Shades of Grey
Damian Lewis and Jamie Dornan talk Golf
At the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland this past October, we had a chance to talk golf with a couple of actors: Jamie Dornan, who stars in the uber-hyped movie “Fifty Shades of Grey,” scheduled for release in February; and Damian Lewis, who starred in the hit TV series “Homeland” and the award-winning World War II miniseries “Band of Brothers.” Dornan, 32, is from Holywood in Northern Ireland, the same hometown as world No. 1 Rory McIlroy. Lewis, 43, is from London. Dornan and Lewis played together in the pro-am portion of the Dunhill.
GD: Who were your golf idols growing up?
Lewis: Seve Ballesteros, obviously, was always very exciting to watch when I was a kid. Sir Nick Faldo was winning a lot for us at the time. Sandy Lyle for his 7-iron out of a fairway bunker to win the Masters in ’88. I liked a lot of the big players.
Dornan: Darren Clarke was huge for me. He’s from where I come from, and a few more boys from that part of the world are flying the flag now like Padraig Harrington, who I played with today, which was an absolute treat.
