There’s quite a bromance developing between One Direction’s sole Irish star Niall Horan and the world’s top golf pro Rory McIlroy, back home in Co. Down this week to host the Irish Open.

Rory and Niall met up last week in Wentworth, England to play in the pro-am part of the BMW Championship, replicating their pairing in last month’s Masters in Georgia.

Niall’s a golf nut and Rory is the ultimate god for those looking to perfect their swing, and the two seem to genuinely like each other. Rory interviewed the boyband idol for a PGA video and confessed he’s not nearly as good a singer as Niall is a golfer. The Westmeath native’s best score is a 79, so he knows his way around the links.
