After getting the chance to caddie for golf pro Rory McIlroy at The Masters in April, the singer is getting his own shot at the hole!

Soccer players Phil Neville and Paul Scholes will round out the team as the foursome competes in Wentworth later this month.

Niall couldn’t be more excited; he said:

“I can’t wait to play with Rory, Phil and Paul. It’s going to be a great event. I know how prestigious the BMW PGA Championship is as The European Tour’s flagship event, so the opportunity to play in the Pro-Am with my mate Rory and two legends of football is going to be amazing ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ what a team!

That said, I’ve heard there are pretty big crowds there on the day, I’m used to those but not when I’m on a golf course. I’ll probably be more nervous at Wentworth than I was performing in front of thousands with 1D, so I’m hoping Rory will give me a few tips on calming the nerves.”

Aww, we always love it when Niall gets all self-deprecating and humble.

Also when he falls down too! LOLz!

Congrats, Niall! Can’t wait to clap extremely softly for you!
