Tom Chaplin

Singer-songwriter and lead vocalist of British alternative rock band Keane, which sold more than ten million records. For the last few years the band has been inactive, and in October 2016 he released a solo album The Wave, which he followed the next year with Twelve Tales of Christmas. Says he can perform at Wembley or Live 8 without a problem…’but I’ve never felt as frightened as when I teed up on the 1st at St Andrews in 2015.’ Says he swings like a scratch golfer, but his short game is a disaster. A member of Rye in Kent, this is his third appearance in the Alfred Dunhill Links.
