Rory McIlroy's Masters Par 3 contest caddie probably has a few more female fans than he does

Niall Horan of the boy band One Direction will be on the bag for McIlroy, which means the World No. 1 might not be No. 1 in female admirers at Augusta National on Wednesday. "He's excited to be here and I'm looking forward to spending a bit of time out there with him tomorrow," McIlroy said at his Tuesday press conference.

We'll have to wait and see if Niall returns the favor and invites Rory up on stage at a future concert.
