Horan Ready to Run in BMW PGA Pro-Am
Irishman joins field of celebs
Hot on the heels of the success of the ISPS Handa World Invitational Men | Women event in Northern Ireland presented by his Modest! Golf Management outfit Niall Horan has announced he will be teeing it up in the BMW PGA Pro-Am on 18th September at Wentworth. Horan who is a member of the Wentworth Club in Surrey will take to the fairways of his famous home club alongside some of world golf’s biggest names.
Horan who is best known for his time as a member of the a member of a certain boyband called One Direction, has since become a successful solo artist and his love for golf is no secret.
The ‘Slow Hands’ singer will join World Cup-winning cricketers Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes, Ashes winners James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Kevin Pietersen, and Test captain Joe Root in playing in the Pro-Am, which has become a hugely-popular event at the prestigious Surrey club in recent years.
Furthermore, Manchester United legends Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nemanja Vidic are also confirmed to play on Wednesday September 18, with Scholes harbouring good memories of last year’s event when he holed out from a bunker on the West Course’s 11th hole.
Horan, who plays off a handicap of ten, said: “It’s a tournament I’ve always gone to. I love playing in the Pro-Am. This is probably my third or fourth time playing in it and I even won it one year.
“I just love it. It’s my home club, I play all my golf there and it’s great to see the course in that shape. We’re going to have an amazing field, especially this year with a few of the boys coming over from America. It’s one of my favourite events on the European Tour.”
