So what’s Niall Horan been up to since One Direction

Well, the most drama-free member of the defunct boy band has taken up golf. Holding a driver, Horan appears on the latest issue of Today’s Golf next to pro golfer Justin Rose. Horan explains that he was interested in the sport even before One Direction announced their indefinite hiatus. He told Today’s Golf (via AOL): “When I was on the road with One Direction it allowed me to escape the hotel for a few hours and relax.”

Horan also added, “Harry [Styles] and I used to play a fair bit and traveling so much has allowed me to play some amazing courses all over the world.” Horan and Rose recently hosted a charity event with a number of celebrity golfers in attendance. Olly Murs was there and performed a brief set. 

As for the other 1D men, Harry Styles recently signed a solo record deal with Columbia and is rumored to be playing Mick Jagger in an upcoming film; Louis Tomlinson is seeking joint custody of his son; and Liam Payne teamed up for a song with Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa.
