World number one Rory McIlroy has said that One Direction star Niall Horan gladly took him up on his offer to be his caddy for the Masters Par 3 contest tomorrow.
The annual light-hearted tournament will become an even greater media frenzy with the presence of the Irish pop star and McIlroy says the Westmeath native can't wait to carry his clubs.
"He's been excited to come here," McIlroy said with a smile.
"He's never been to the Masters. I caught up with him in Australia at the end of last year and he was really excited, and I said, 'If you're available Wednesday afternoon and you want to carry the bag for nine holes, you're more than welcome.'
"He's excited to be here and looking forward to spending a bit of time with him out there tomorrow."
In addition to McIlroy and Horan, Tiger Woods also said he'll compete, with both of his children as caddies, for the first time since 2004.
