We’ll soon find out whether Niall Horan is a better golfer or caddie.

The One Director star, who looped for Rory McIlroy during the Masters Par 3 Contest, has signed up to compete in the celebrity pro-am at the European Tour’s BMW PGA Championship later this month. Their foursome will include soccer players Phil Neville and Paul Scholes. 

McIlroy, who will be defending his title at Wentworth, said in a statement, “Niall and I had good fun together in the Par 3 Contest at the Masters, and I’m looking forward to seeing him again at Wentworth, without the boiler suit.” 

The BMW PGA, scheduled to begin May 21, is the fourth of five consecutive events for the world No. 1.
