Oh no, Niall! The One Direction cutie didn’t have the best of luck at the BMW PGA Championship Celebrity Pro-Am tournament on May 20. Niall almost hit and ‘nearly killed’ a bystander when he took a swing on the course! Click to WATCH!
Well, it looks like Niall Horan, 21, probably won’t have a huge career in golf. The One Direction singer played alongside Rory McIlroy, 26, in the celebrity pro-am tournament before the BMW Championship in England on May 20, and he didn’t exactly have a winning score. A bystander was filming Niall’s swing, and Niall chucked the ball right near the guy’s face! The bystander claimed that Niall “nearly killed” him with his not-so-good swing! YIKES.
Niall Horan’s Golfing Accident: ‘Nearly Kills’ Someone At Pro-Am
YouTube user A Buchan posted a video with the title “Niall Horan of One Direction nearly killed me today.” Naturally, we had to take a look. Niall took a swing at the tournament and the ball started flying right towards the camera! A scared gasp was heard in the background.
The man filming exclaimed after the frightening experience, “That would have f–king killed me!” The bystander didn’t suffer any injuries, but he was extremely shocked after the incident. When asked if he got hit, A Buchan replied, “No, he nearly killed me.” The man’s reflexes definitely came in handy. “If I hadn’t of been watching, that would have f–king killed me,” he continued.
It’s a good thing Niall’s so cute! Alex Perry, an ESPN reporter who was covering Niall and Rory at the tournament, summed up Niall’s golf performance in a shocking (yet also kind of hilarious) tweet:

Niall’s had a crazy week! Niall and the rest of the One Direction hit up the Billboard Music Awards on May 17 in their first appearance after Zayn Malik, 22, left the band.
As the group got up to accept their award for Top Duo/Group, Harry totally grabbed Niall’s balls in celebration! The long-haired trickster just had spice up a normally boring hug. Niall was definitely caught off guard, but he laughed it off!
