Niall Horan teaming up with golfer pal Rory McIlroy again for PGA Championship Pro-Am tournament

One Direction star Niall Horan has landed a tee time at the PGA Championship Pro-Am in Wentworth, England later this month (May15).

The keen golfer caddied for fellow Irish star Rory McIlroy at a pre-Masters event in Georgia last month (Apr15) and now he'll be hoping for a round of birdies as he joins his course pal and British soccer stars Phil Neville and Paul Scholes as part of an all-star foursome.


Horan says, "I can't wait to play with Rory, Phil and Paul. It's going to be a great event. I know how prestigious the BMW PGA Championship is as The European Tour's flagship event, so the opportunity to play in the Pro-Am with my mate Rory and two legends of football is going to be amazing - what a team!


"That said, I've heard there are pretty big crowds there on the day, I'm used to those but not when I'm on a golf course. I'll probably be more nervous at Wentworth than I was performing in front of thousands with 1D, so I'm hoping Rory will give me a few tips on calming the nerves."
