Yesterday, Niall Horan teed off at the 2016 Pro-Am. The One Direction member played alongside friend and golfer Rory Mallory to kick off this week’s Irish Open. Niall and Rory are also using this opportunity to host their own private charity event. The Horan & Rose Gala Dinner and Golf Day was announced in March and will take place later this month.
“I met Rory a few years ago. We became mates,” Niall says in an interview on the green. “He’s a top man and he gives me a few tips every now and then. Whether they work or not I don’t know, but he’s a great lad and he has a love for golf.”
Niall also mentions how he hopes to make golf a younger game. Perhaps that is a big reason behind his decision to create his own golf management company to scout fresh talent.
