Niall Horan will accompany Rory McIlroy in the Pro-Am at the 2018 Omega Dubai Desert Classic at Emirates Golf Club in January.
The former One Direction star, who is an avid golfer and now manages numerous players, will be flying in specially to accompany his friend on 25 January.
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.
"Thanks to Omega and Golf in Dubai for the invite, I've not been to Dubai for a while so very much looking forward to returning!"
McIlroy, won the event in 2009 and 2015, has played with Horan before in Pro-Ams, and also had him carry the bag at the Masters Par Three Contest.
