Niall Horan might be best known as a musician – but the One Direction star turned solo artist is making waves in our sport through his company Modest! Golf.

Horan, an eight handicapper, has been “mad into golf”, as he once put it in an interview. “It was hard not to be with Tiger around,” he added. And with fame and fortune came the invites, perhaps most famously when he teed up in the pro-am ahead of the BMW PGA Championship in 2015. When word spread, thousands of teenage girls skipped school to make their way down to Wentworth and see their icon strut his stuff on the lush fairways of the West course.

That passion led to him “spending a lot of time around the tour socially”, as he explained to bunkered in an in-depth interview for the December 2023 issue.

• Niall Horan: Cynics fuelled me to succeed with Modest! Golf

“What I noticed pretty quickly,” he added, “was that a lot of young guys, particularly those just below the DP World Tour, didn’t know where they were going to be playing the next week.”

And so Modest! Golf, a management company alongside business partner Mark McDonnell, was born.

Years later, Horan’s golf venture is still going strong with a number of high-profile clients, including Tyrrell Hatton and Leona Maguire.

But you’re here to see what gear the Northern Irishman has in his bag. So let’s take a closer look…
