Brit and Ivor Novello-nominated singer-songwriter Tom Grennan will be the headline act for this year’s AIG Women’s Open at St Andrews.

Set to perform on Saturday 24 August, Grennan is the second chart-topping live music act to feature at the women’s golf major championship, following Ellie Goulding’s electric performance at Walton Heath last year.

Grennan found huge success with his breakthrough UK #1 and BRIT-certified Gold album ‘Evering Road’, which included platinum-selling anthems ‘Little Bit Of Love’ and ‘By Your Side’. His second album ‘What Ifs & Maybes’ debuted at #1 on the UK Albums Chart last year and since then he has accumulated over 1.7 billion streams and over 9 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone. A passionate golfer, Tom will perform a range of his classic alternative indie hits at St Andrews this summer.

Speaking ahead of his performance Tom said: “I absolutely love my golf, so it’s going to be class performing at the AIG Women’s Open this summer at St Andrews! I spend way too much time out on the course so it’s nice to be able to put those two passions together. St Andrews is the one too - the most historic course in the world! It’s going to be epic.

“The women's game is in a really exciting place right now with the likes of Nelly Korda, Rose Zhang coming through and Charley Hull representing the UK all in the top 10. I can’t wait to watch the best in the world competing at St Andrews. If I wasn't performing I'd be there watching or glued to my TV anyway!"

The showpiece of The R&A’s commitment to championing the changing face of women’s golf, the AIG Women’s Open sees the world’s best athletes go head-to-head in the most international line-up of the year. The Championship aims to attract new and diverse audiences by challenging perceptions of golf and delivering an exceptional off-course experience to match the dramatic on-course action.

This year the AIG Women’s Open is set to take place at the iconic Old Course in St Andrews, renowned as the home of golf and one of the most revered venues in the world, from the 21-25 August. This will be the third time the Old Course has staged the prestigious Championship.

“The AIG Women’s Open combines golf and entertainment to create a unique atmosphere so it’s brilliant to have an incredible artist like Tom performing who also happens to be a huge golf fan. It’s going to be an unforgettable evening in St Andrews.”

Alongside the Tom Grennan concert, fans attending the Championship will be entertained by world class golf played by some of the biggest names in the sport including World Number 1 Nelly Korda, Georgia Hall, Charley Hull, Minjee Lee and defending champion Lilia Vu.
