Horan steps up for American Golf putting challenge

Golf retailer American Golf has teed 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, Horan reached the six-foot mark on three occasions before pulling his eight-foot putt wide. This means that although he tops the leaderboard as the first celebrity to take part, his score is sure to come under serious threat as the challenge progresses.

Alongside Horan, American Golf is inviting stars of stage, screen and sport to take on the pressure putt challenge. Over the next six weeks a new celebrity will take on the challenge each week to see if they can surpass Horan’s score.

First up next Monday will be Cold Feet star James Nesbitt, with legendary jockey AP McCoy, ex-Liverpool footballer and Sky pundit Jamie Carragher and BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker following soon after. Videos of each new challenger will go live on American Golf’s social channels on Mondays at 9pm.
