ON THE TEE: Ronan and Storm

LOVED-up Ronan Keating and his girlfriend Storm Uechtritz couldn't keep their hands off each other as they teed off for a charity golf classic.

The former Boyzone star helped Storm perfect her drive and swing on the course, and they both embraced warmly after she managed to avoid sand bunkers.

TV producer Storm (30) smiled for the camera and showed off her enviable legs in a pink and white paint- splattered mini-skirt and a hot pink base ball cap at the 2013 Marks & Spencer Ireland Marie Keating Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic.

The pair are known for their public displays of affection and regularly let their fans know how much they adore one another.



But it wasn't all loving glances, golf balls and stolen kisses. The pair suffered a slip-up early on in the day when there was a bump with a fellow golfer's buggy.

The couple were beetling about the course after their first hole when two ladies accidentally reversed into them, according to sources.

Now in its 14th year the tournament always attracts a bevy of celebrities, golf enthusiasts and socialites.

And this year was no exception with Love/Hate star Laurence Kinlan, TV presenter Brian Ormond, Keith Duffy, Ronnie Whelan and Brian and Vogue McFadden all showing up at the K Club.

"It's a hell of a turn out," Ronan said. "It's tough to raise funds at the moment - for charities all around the country. But I feel very proud we've pulled in 31 teams and got great people – Bressie Ian, Ian Wright, Brian McFadden."

McFadden suffered last- minute nerves earlier in the day when he touched down in Dublin Airport.

The dad-of-two's golfing clubs went missing, but thankfully they were located in time for the competition.



Wife Vogue looked chic as she cheered Brian on, wearing skinny black jeans, a white shirt and carrying an oversized tote.

All the celebrities taking part in the tournament wore baby pink polo shirts to show their support for the cause, which helps raise money for cancer research.

But Voice Of Ireland coach Niall Breslin rocked up in a black tee-shirt and base ball cap. Ronan also talked about how proud he is of daughter Missy's career. "I've done one film and she's done three," he said.

"She's constantly auditioning and reading for films, very big Hollywood films. She reads a lot of scripts.

"But I like the fact that she's not getting some stuff, because you don't want them to get it all in one go."

"They have to be able to graft, they have to be able to work hard and take knocks."
