Dubai: Global superstar, Niall Horan, announced he’ll be coming to Dubai to attend the 29th edition of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic (DDC) golf tournament, taking place at Emirates Golf Club, from Jan.25-28, 2018.

The multiple award-winning performer, who has sold over 70 million records and toured the globe numerous times, will for the first-time ever, not be putting his vocals to the test, but instead his golfing skills.

In a post released on Tuesday on his social channels – the Irish artist announced he will be flying in especially for the Omega Dubai Desert Classic golfing tournament where he will participate in the ProAm on Jan.24, 2017, with good friend and Professional Golfer, Rory McIlroy, who won the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in 2009 and 2015 and will again compete in the tournament in January.

Having previously caddied for Rory at the Par-3 Contest at the Augusta National in 2015, Niall will finally have the chance to play alongside Rory during the ProAm.

Furthermore, there will be the chance for one lucky winner to play in the ProAm with Niall and Rory. They’ll also win a seven-night stay in Dubai, including flights, plus tickets to each day of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic for them and a plus one.

For those who prefer to observe rather than participate, there is the option of attending the Omega ‘Constellation Clinic’ at Emirates Golf Club Driving Range on Jan.26. Featuring Rory, Niall and also Professional Golfer Paige Spiranac, Rory and Paige will be showing Niall how to perfect his golfing skills and will no doubt make for some amusing viewing. Attending the clinic will be open to all those who visit the tournament that day.

Horan said: “I’m delighted to confirm my attendance at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in January. It’s an incredible event on the European Tour schedule and I am very much looking forward to playing with my pal Rory in the ProAm and attending the Friday night clinic also.”
