One Direction's Niall Horan Takes A Tumble While Golf Caddying For Rory McIlroy (VIDEO)

One Direction star Niall Horan tried something a little different this week, acting as a golf caddy for Rory McIlroy.

However, his day at the Par 3 Masters contest didn’t exactly go completely to plan, and the 1D star took a tumble - while Rory was being interviewed live on TV. Oh, Niall.

Niall’s never one to let a small slip-up get in the way of a good day though (apart from the time he needed surgery after being chased by a squirrel, obviously) and the singer laughed off his tumble before taking to Twitter to blame pine leaves.

Well, at least this means he can cross golf caddy off his list of potential post-1D jobs, right?

The singer took on the task at the request of his pal - and golf champion - Rory, who made the offer just weeks ago.

The time off is probably a welcome break for Niall, who’s been busy touring with his band for the past few months.

Of course, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that things haven’t exactly gone smoothly for the lads recently, and they’re currently settling into life as a four-piece following Zayn Malik’s departure.
