Harry Styles challenges mythical Old Course

On tour in Great Britain, the former leader of "One Direction" offered himself a moment of relaxation on the Old Course. His swing is pretty clean...

Harry Styles, golf

On the famous hole n°17 of the Old Course, the Englishman, whose handicap is around 13-14, also tested the inventiveness of his little game on the famous little road which borders the green, made famous there a long time ago by a certain Seve Ballesteros.

The result is excellent! Crazy about golf, Harry Styles, who has sometimes been seen miming a golf swing in the middle of a concert, was accompanied on the course by a large crowd, no doubt also impatient to hear him sing in Edinburgh this weekend.

Obviously, the actor of "Dunkirk" and "Don't worry darling" enjoyed the moment! One Direction are a British boy band formed by Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik They signed a contract with Simon Cowell's Syco record label and, after forming as a group, they finished third in the seventh edition of the talent show The X Factor in 2010.

Having become famous worldwide, also thanks to the support of social networks, have released five albums: Up All Night, Take Me Home, Midnight Memories, Four and Made in the A.M. (respectively in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015); the albums reached the top ten of the main music charts, along with fifteen singles, including What Makes You Beautiful, Live While We're Young, Best Song Ever, Story of My Life, Steal My Girl and Drag Me Down.

Often seen as part of the new British invasion in the United States of America, the group have sold a total of around 50 million recordings, according to the band's company-manager, Modest! Management. Their awards include four BRIT Awards and four MTV Video Music Awards.

According to Nick Garfield, president and chief executive officer of Sony Music, One Direction had an estimated $50 million business as of June 2012. In 2012 they were proclaimed "Top New Artist" by US Billboard magazine. In 2014, according to a list compiled by The Sunday Times, One Direction would be the richest boy band in the history of British music, with assets of around 14 million pounds each, for a total of 70 million; in 2013 alone, between tours, album sales and other commercial activities related to their work, the group would have grossed more than 45 million pounds.

Zayn Malik was also part of the boy band at the beginning, who officially left the group on March 25, 2015 to continue his career as a solo singer.[6] However, the remaining members continued the world tour and recorded an album in the same year, Made in the A.M.. Overall, the boy band has sold over 50 million records, including albums and singles.
