Watch Niall Horan nearly kill a cameraman with a tee shot

Last week, we were complimentary of Niall Horan's golf swing. And the One Direction star took pride in that fact when one of his friends, English cricket star Kevin Pietersen, pointed it out to him:

Unfortunately, that set off a sequence of less flattering tweets aimed at the pop star. The Twitter handle @GCW was quick to point out an embarrassing video of Horan hitting a tee shot that nearly killed a cameraman. And Pietersen then passed it along to his bud and questioned Golf Digest's post. Check out the video, but be warned of the NSFW language, which probably comes from whoever Horan nearly killed.

Horan's response?

At least, Ian Poulter rushed to Horan's defense:

But it didn't end there. The relentless @GCW then came back with this clip of Horan falling at Augusta National while carrying Rory McIlroy's bag at the 2015 Masters Par 3 Contest.

And Pietersen rushed to respond again. Rough.

It's OK, Niall. We still think you have a pretty good swing. Just don't be offended if we stay behind you when you're on the tee.
