Former One Direction member Niall Horan has taken on the responsibility of replacing a kid’s iPhone that got cracked during a golf tournament for which he was present.
Horan reportedly took down the kid’s information after PGA pro Tyrell Hatton, who is signed to his Modest! Golf Management hit the phone with his drive on the 13th hole.
The former boy band member has been working on new music with fellow artist Lewis Capaldi for his fans, but for some reason, the songs may never see the light of day.

Fans were shocked in the comments, wondering what Horan was doing at the game and why he had to take on the responsibility of fixing the kid’s phone.
One fan wrote, “ok yo, they just showed your tweet on ESPN +! And, Niall Horan the singer? Just happened to be there and the only guy w a pen and paper? lol.”
Hatton, a famous PGA pro, signed with the golf management company Modest Golf in 2019, and Horan owns it, hence the reason why he was at the game in Rivera, LA.
Tyrell Hatton Is Signed Under Niall Horan’s Golf Management Company
The pro golfer currently sits at number 26 on the world golf ranking and has had a very successful career both in European and PGA (Professional Golfer’s Association) tours.
On signing with Horan’s management, Hatton said, per Irish Golfer, “I am really pleased to sign a new management deal with Modest Golf.”
He continued, “Since signing with the team in 2019, things really couldn’t have gone much better. I’ve enjoyed every minute of working with the guys and I hope that we can continue to enjoy success together into 2021 and beyond.”
Considering the 31-year-olds success and achievements, it’s no surprise that Horan was ecstatic to have him join Modest Golf. “We are so proud to resign Tyrrell to the business,” the singer said at the time, per Irish Golfer.
“His golf this past 18 months has been incredible. To not only witness him make his breakthrough in America and win for the first time on the PGA Tour, but to also watch him win the European Tour’s flagship event at the BMW was something really special. We’re just so delighted and proud to be on that journey with him.”
Niall Horan Is An Influential Figure In The World Of Golf
Following his days as a teenage heartthrob in the popular boy band, One Direction, Horan has not only grown his solo career but has also become a prominent figure in the world of Golf.
Horan, a self-proclaimed Golf fanatic, began his transition into the popular sport in a big way; by opening his own management company, Modest Golf.
The company boasts top talents such as Tyrell Hatton, Leona Maguire, Ewan Ferguson, Guido Migliozzi, Connor Syme, Angel Yin, Marcus Helligkilde, and more.
Horan was ranked as the 17th most influential person in golf according to Today’s Golfer’s 100 most influential people in golf 2022 list.
He Has New Music That He Will Never Release
Other than his passion for golf, Horan has an immense love for music. According to reports, he and fellow artist Lewis Capaldi have been in the studio together working on several new songs, but unfortunately, Horan may never release them.
Horan revealed this during a recent interview, saying neither he nor Capaldi “adore” the tracks they worked on. Speaking with Daily Star, the former 1D member said, per NME, “There was a night we went into the studio and wrote a couple of songs. They clearly weren’t good enough because we would have heard them by now.”
He continued, stating that “one of them was actually decent to be fair. But you get one go at a collab and until we both absolutely adore it and spend more time in the studio, there’s not much point in releasing it I don’t think.”
