Tom Holland sports a bruise after ‘being hit on the head with a golf ball’ while playing a round at St Andrews

His most famous movie character uses his ‘spider sense’ to detect danger.

But none of Spider-Man’s superpowers appear to have rubbed off on Hollywood actor Tom Holland at the weekend when he was seemingly hit on the head with a ball during a round of golf in Scotland.

A number of witnesses claim the star was unaware the stray ball was hurtling towards him before it dunted him on the forehead.

The Spider-Man star, who plays off a handicap of six and is a regular at amateur events, was playing near St Andrews in Fife in the first Tom Holland Charity Golf Day.

The 27-year-old, who plays Peter Parker in the Marvel movies, appeared at the opening gala of a film festival at the Byre Theatre, St Andrews, that evening and sported a round, red graze on his head.

Making a rare appearance with his lookalike younger brother Harry, the actor, 27, beamed in snaps as he cut a casual figure in a beige open neck polo top and matching chinos.

Meanwhile his younger brother, 25, opted for a simple white T-shirt, black cardigan and jeans.

Tom, who has poked fun at his height in the past, looked to be slightly smaller than his younger brother, as they showcased their uncanny resemblance with the same mop of brown hair.

Bracing the Scottish winds, the Spiderman star wrapped up in a blue padded jacket and matching blue trousers before adding a baseball cap as he took to the golf course.

Meanwhile Harry embraced his inner Scotsman in a checked sweater vest as he posed beside his brother in the course.

Tom and Harry are two of four brothers, as Harry also has a twin, Sam, and they have a younger brother Paddy, 18.

The foursome were seen together last September as they headed to the celebrity Pro-Am golf tournament at the Wentworth Golf Club in Virginia Water, Surrey.

Following in their big brother’s footsteps, both Harry and Paddy are also pursuing acting careers, especially Harry who is often spotted alongside Tom on various film sets.

He has made appearances in several of Tom’s recent movies including The Impossible, Spider-Man: No Way Home and Cherry. He also directed the 2020 short film Roses for Lily.

Previously talking about his brother Harry on the Graham Norton Show in December 2021, Tom shared a hilarious anecdote from when his sibling was cast in a scene for the film Spider-Man: No Way Home.

‘We cast Harry, and he’s on set and I go up to the stunt coordinator, and I’m like, “Please, just whatever you do with the stunt, make it so he’s upside down.”

‘We’re doing the scene. Harry’s upside down swinging back and forth. Bless him, he’s doing a really good job. And as the day’s going on, he’s got these lines and he’s starting to forget his lines and his eyes are about to pop out of his head.

‘But the icing on the cake — and I don’t think he actually knows this — we saw the film the other day and they’ve cut the scene. It’s not in the film.’

Tom also told Jimmy Kimmel in 2019 that him and Harry were trying to set up a production company together as he gushed about how much he relies on his brother.

He said: ‘We’re trying to set up a production company together, and we’ve been writing a script together, and I work for him. … If Harry wasn’t in my life, I wouldn’t have made it here tonight.’

Tom went on to call himself ‘stupid,’ noting that his brother ‘has to tell me where to go all the time.’

Holland is in a relationship with Spider-Man co-star Zendaya, who has also starred in both Dune movies.

His agent was yesterday approached for comment.
