Anyone who knows anything at all about Niall James Horan of Mullingar knows that he loves golf. Luuuuurves it. Love love love love laaaaaaaavs it. He just can't get enough of those white dimpled balls.
In fact, Niall loves the sport so much that he even used his hiatus time to set up a golf management company with some bigwigs from Modest! (yes we can see that face you're making).
And now Modest! Golf Management have made their first big announcement, revealing that they're the 2016 official golf management partner for the Northern Ireland Open at Galgorm Castle Golf Club this July.
Nialler literally are you happy though, you're actually making us write about sports.
An official press releases/statement type thing reads:
"Director of Modest! Golf Management Mark McDonnell commented, 'Modest Golf are delighted to be working with the Challenge Tour and Galgorm on this event. We are excited to come to Northern Ireland; a country that continues to produce some of the best players in the world'."
It also includes a paragraph from Neil himself, which says:
"Director Niall Horan adds, 'The next generation of golfers is a huge focus for us as a business. You only need to look at the history of the Challenge Tour to see the calibre of player it produces. We are hugely excited to be official partners to the NI Open and welcome some amazing golf talent from across the world to participate'."
Gonna call him Director Niall in every article we ever write about him from now on.
The Northern Ireland Open takes place at Galgorm Castle from July 28-31 and the tournament is free to enter. INTERESTING.
What's the liklihood that Niall will be there, do you think? Not that we're thinking of practising our back swing (think that might be a tennis term so we're off to a good start) and entering or anything. Ahem.
