Niall Horan got into the swing at golf as a break from One Direction

Niall Horan said he used golf to escape his hectic life with One Direction.

The 22-year-old Irishman is a regular on the golf course, has caddied for Rory McIlroy and has turned his hand to golf talent management since the band went on hiatus.

He told Today's Golfer that he came to rely on the sport to unwind during One Direction's jet-setting five years together.

"When I was on the road with One Direction it allowed me to escape the hotel for a few hours and relax.

"Harry (Styles) and I used to play a fair bit and travelling so much has allowed me to play some amazing courses all over the world.

"It's a great way to escape from everything for a few hours."
