"Harry Potter" star Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the film franchise, had to be taken to the hospital after collapsing at a celebrity golf tournament Thursday ahead of the Ryder Cup. 

The actor had been participating in a two-person scramble competition that comprised of sport and entertainment celebrities and was playing 11 holes with teammate and former professional ice hockey player Teemu Selanne, according to The Guardian. He suffered the apparent medical emergency upon conclusion of the match at Whistling Straits, a gold course in Kohler, Wisconsin, where the Europe vs. United States golf showdown will be hosted over the weekend.

Images show Felton, who celebrated his 34th birthday on Wednesday, appearing pale and shaky as he is helped to a golf cart, which then transported him away for medical evaluation. 

"In today’s Ryder Cup Celebrity Match, actor and musician Tom Felton experienced a medical incident on the course while participating for Europe. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment. No further details are available," the PGA said in a statement. 

Born in Epsom, Surrey, Felton's career began at age eight, when he landed an international commercial campaign, according to IMDB. He went on to star in dozens of films. His first major title was 1999's "Anna and the King," which featured Jodie Foster. Two years later he landed the role as Harry Potter's arch-rival, Draco Malfoy, in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." He featured in all eight of the "Harry Potter" films while also filming several independent horror movies including "The Disappeared," (2008), "Night Wolf," (2010) and "The Apparition" (2012), which featured Ashley Greene of "Twilight" fame. Felton also appeared in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" and "From the Rough."
