HARRY KANE sunk an 18-foot putt as the England forward joined other sports legends to switch to golf for a mega event in New Jersey.
But Liverpool midfielder James Milner was the standout player for the rest of the world in the inaugural Icons Series tournament as a US squad brimming with NFL and NBA talent dominated.
Kane potted his powerful putt alongside Australian tennis icon Ash Barty as they lost to basketball hero JR Smith and ex-baseball pitcher J Scholtz.
The Spurs forward and Barty then beat the gridiron duo of two-time Super Bowl winner Ben Roethlisberger and former SB king Marshall Faulk in the Greensomes.
However, Kane was back on the ropes on his second fourball as he and boxing superstar Canelo Alvarez lost to Faulk and former New York Giants hero Michael Strahan as the US led 10-5 overnight.
And to make matters worse for Kane, the Greens said Strahan “needs to speak to him” – to “discuss” his fondness for the New England Patriots and Tom Brady.

Even more somber, the Three Lions’ 12-single captain lost on Day 2 of this Ryder Cup-style event to ex-Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Roethlisberger, who finished him off with a birdie.
However, Milner did hit fourball victories with former Australian cricket skipper Ricky Ponting and former Manchester United frontman Alan Smith.
And there was rejoicing among the giants of the Southern Hemisphere world at the tournament hosted by the Liberty National Golf Course in Jersey City.
Former Australian rugby union ace George Gregan triumphed in his two fourballs alongside South Africa’s cricket icon AB De Villiers and former Scottish rugby star Gavin Hastings.
But for Kane, the two-day race was all about the “challenge” to prove yourself in one of the world’s most frustrating sports
He said: “You know, you hit a stationary object, in a minute you’re hitting it as hard as you’ve ever hit it, and then a hole later you can’t even make proper contact.
“So this challenge of this fight is really challenging – mentally forgetting about shots and moving on and being positive.
“I love a challenge and I think that’s what drives us all to play more and more.”
