Theo Walcott, Ramsey and other EPL stars switch to Golf

Theo Walcott may have found the target more regularly for Arsenal this season, but his golfing accuracy clearly needs a bit of work.

The Gunners star was forced to play a shot from the woods at Wentworth, where he is taking part in the PGA ProAm tournament.

Big names from around the world of sport flooded the event - three of them together.

Rugby captain Chris Robshaw and former England cricket skipper Andrew Strauss were playing with the Northern Irish star - no 2 in the world.

Other famous faces from the world of sport to take part included Fulham's John Arne Riise, Walcott's Arsenal team-mate Aaron Ramsey, and rugby legends Matt Dawson, Will Greenwood and Keith Wood.
