Hi, I'm Niall Horan and I'm here with Golf Digest
00:10
to do a pool challenge.
00:11
Golf Digest has given me the chance to win some money
00:13
for a local charity here in Minneapolis called Reach
00:15
who look after children of military families.
00:17
(upbeat music)
00:19
Aw, it's making me nervous.
00:22
Hey Niall, how'd you get started in golf?
00:23
I started playing when I was about 12 years old.
00:27
And my friends started joining the local golf club
00:31
so I just went with them.
00:33
Getting in the water is a win.
00:34
Can't miss the water from here, can I?
00:35
So how'd you get started in music?
00:37
Just I've always been,
00:39
Yes, on the green!
00:41
I've always been singing since I was a kid.

[Host] Favorite meal: Thai food or In and Out Burger?
01:43
Thai everywhere else in the world
01:46
and then In and Out because you can only get that
01:49

01:50
Good answer, that.
01:52
[Host] What's the best thing you've ever bought?
01:53
Probably my first guitar

A lot of them I wouldn't be able to say here.
02:15
That should do it.

Yes!

02:26
I'll have to get up into the air quick
02:27
because you have to get up about 13 steps.
02:29
Then I have to get it out the window
02:31
and out into the pool.

This one's for the kids.
