One Direction’s Niall Horan to caddie for Rory McIlroy at Masters Par 3 Contest

Rory McIlroy will go One Direction at the Masters Par 3 Contest on Wednesday.

McIlroy said Tuesday at Augusta National that he'll have One Direction band member Niall Horan as his caddie for the annual short-course contest.

A year ago, McIlroy had then-fiancee Caroline Wozniacki on the bag for the Par 3 Contest. McIlroy called off their engagement the next month.

The world No. 1 could be playing in the Par 3 Contest alongside Tiger Woods, who will compete in the Wednesday tradition for the first time since 2004.
