Niall Horan’s No.1 Spot Set to go in One Direction

Nationwide golf retailer American Golf has tee’d off its new celebrity Pressure Putt Challenge with avid golf fan and one of pop music’s biggest names, Niall Horan.

The former One Direction star, who is the Director of golf management company Modest! Golf Management, stepped up to the tee in the high pressure minute long challenge to see how many putts of increasing difficulty he could sink. With the pressure on, Niall reached the six foot mark on three occasions before pulling his eight foot putt wide. This means that although Niall tops the leader board as the first celebrity to take part, his score is sure to come under serious threat as the challenge progresses.

Alongside Niall, American Golf is inviting stars of stage, screen and sport to take on the pressure putt challenge. Over the next 6 weeks a new celebrity will take on the challenge each week to see if they can surpass Niall’s score of 6 ft. First up next Monday will be Cold Feet star James Nesbitt, with legendary jockey A.P. McCoy, ex Liverpool footballer and Sky pundit Jamie Carragher and BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker following soon after. Video of each new challenger will go live on American Golf’s social channels on Mondays at 9pm, and as you’ll see, when the pressure is on these household names can take the challenge very seriously indeed (We’re looking at you Dan Walker!)

To see Niall Horan’s Pressure Putt Challenge follow this link and follow American Golf’s social channels to be among the first to see how the challengers to his top spot fare. We suspect his current number one spot will be going in One Direction!
