London, Oct 6: World No. 2 Justin Rose and Irish pop star, Niall Horan will play together at the Hero Pro-Am at the British Masters for Roses selected cause Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens on October 10.
Rose, the tournament host, who recently went up to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time, was thrilled to welcome Horan on board for the Sky Sports British Masters, with the Irishman also set to play in the Hero Pro-Am at Walton Heath.
A day before the Pro-Am, Rose will be joined by Hero Indian Open champion Matt Wallace, Paul Dunne and Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston and two other players for a night of action-packed golf at the Hero Challenge to be staged at the iconic Canary Wharf on October 9.
“I’m delighted to again be working with Niall to raise money for Cancer Research UK Kids &Teens, a cause which is very close to my heart,” the 2016 Olympic Golf Gold Medallist said.
“We’ve been lucky enough to raise a lot of money over the last couple of years and we have seen first-hand what a difference it can make. Niall loves his golf and helps to bring the game to a different audience, so it’s great for him to be able to play in the Hero Pro-Am, which is now packed with big names from various industries,” he added.
