One Direction’s Niall Horan hit an embarrassing tee shot during Wednesday’s Masters Par 3 Contest, and now he has payback in mind. 

As part of their deal, McIlroy will now have to sing on stage with one of the world’s most popular bands when they play Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts on Sept. 12, according to a report Sunday by Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis. The concert falls a few days after the PGA Tour’s Boston-area Deutsche Bank Championship, the second leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Rory’s only stipulation?

“He’s allowed to pick the song,” Horan said.  

When asked whether he’s ever heard McIlroy sing a tune, Horan replied with a smile, “No, but apparently he’s terrible.”
