Kathryn Newton featured alongside Djokovic, Bale and other stars at the Ryder Cup exhibition match – here’s everything you need to know
Novak Djokovic and Gareth Bale showcased their talent as they contributed significantly to Team Monty’s remarkable 7-4 triumph against Team Pavin during the celebrity all-star Ryder Cup match held in Rome. Djokovic, who recently secured his 24th Grand Slam title at the US Open, temporarily put aside his tennis racket to participate in a special event at the Marco Simone Golf Club, building excitement for the upcoming biennial Europe vs. USA competition scheduled for Friday.
Novak Djokovic teamed up with G4D Tour (golf for the disabled) star Kirk Popert, securing a 3-1 victory over F1 driver Carlos Sainz and Italian G4D golfer Tommaso Perrino in one of three matches played at the course.
Djokovic initially appeared on the first tee with a tennis racket before switching to a driver, impressively driving the green from an advanced tee at the par-four 16th hole, earning him the shot of the day accolade. Gareth Bale partnered with team captain Colin Montgomerie in a seven-hole event, triumphing 2-1 against Corey Pavin and former professional footballer Andriy Shevchenko. In another match, content creator Garett Hilbert and surfer Leonardo Firoavanti played to a 2-2 draw with Hollywood actress Kathryn Newton and former NFL star Victor Cruz.
