Niall Horan: 0, Golf Clubs: 1.
The One Direction crooner decided to knock something off of his bucket list while on hiatus from the boy band's On the Road Again Tour, and spent the day as a caddie for friend and Northern Irish golf pro Rory McIlroy (the No. 1 golfer in the world) at the Par 3 contest on Wednesday, a day before the 2015 Masters.
However, Niall's glorious day included a few mishaps—like slipping and falling while walking with the clubs to a Sky Sports interview. (It's OK to laugh, he's fine.)
The Irish cutie was trotting along while carrying the heavy bag of clubs on his shoulder beside McIlroy, who was preparing to talk to a Sky Sports reporter about the event, when oh no, Niall is on the ground! He got up fairly quickly and tried to play it off, but bless his heart, we all felt that fall.
Horan made note of the embarrassing moment on his Twitter after the fact.
If your walking around augusta , don't step on the pine leaves, slippy as hell Hahahaha! #redfaced !— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) April 8, 2015
He continued to tweet about his magical golf day, writing about the highlights of his adventure, which included meeting another pro—Tiger Woods!
I've been lucky enough to do some pretty amazing things, but that's gotta be up there huh? Loved it !— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) April 8, 2015
Also , can't say I've ever been so nervous in my life than when Rory handed me that golf club, horrendous shot!— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) April 8, 2015
As you may have noticed from his posts, Niall actually had a chance to get on the green and take a swing, something he told Sky Sports was way more nerve-wrecking than singing to thousands of fans on stage.
"Can't say I've been that nervous in a long time. Yeah, it was tough, but it was all right," he said. It probably didn't help that the ball went in the water, but hey, A for effort, right?!
Apparently, Niall and Rory had a deal. The golf pro revealed in the interview that since the 1D singer got on the green and took a swing, Rory would be getting on stage to sing a few lines with the band in Boston later this year.
Better start warming up those pipes, McIlroy!
