London: Singer Niall Horan has revealed he and fellow One Direction member Harry Styles used golf to escape from the pressures of the band.
Horan admitted he and Styles loved playing the game while on the road with One Direction as it allowed them to relax, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"Well, I have got into it more over the past four or five years and appreciate it more. When I was on the road with One Direction it allowed me to escape the hotel for a few hours and relax," Horan told Today's Golfer magazine.
"Harry 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 is a great way to escape from everything for a few hours," he added.
Horan admitted he is a complete "anorak" when it comes to golf statistics.
"I love it. I'm obsessed with it to be honest. I have a massive passion for it and I play quite a lot. Most of the time at The Grove (in Hertfordshire, England) which is convenient because it's just 20 minutes from my home," he added.
