One Direction's Niall Horan Will Caddie for Pal Rory McIlroy
The singer will carry his pal's clubs for the Masters Par 3 Contest on Wednesday
Relax, fangirls: Niall Horan just has a temporary new day job. The 21-year-old singer is hitting the golf course to caddie for his friend Rory McIlroy during the Masters Par 3 Contest on Wednesday, ESPN reports.
McIlroy, 25, is ranked No. 1 in the tournament.
“He’s been excited to come here,” the golfer said of his fellow Irishman. “He’s never been to the Masters. I caught up with him in Australia at the end of last year, and he was really excited, and I said, ‘If you’re available Wednesday afternoon and you want to carry the bag for nine holes, you’re more than welcome.’ ”
Horan has played the sport since he was 12 years old: He was even made an honorary lifetime member of his local club last December, according to the Irish Mirror.
