Singers relax before new shows

Niall Horan and Liam Payne are making the most of their downtime before resuming One Direction‘s tour.

The singers chose different ways to relax this week, with Niall heading off to a hotel in Hertfordshire to play golf.

‘Played a great game today @thegrovehotel,’ Niall, 20, captioned a photo from the course on Instagram.

‘one of the birdies on the 7th , great view of the hotel!’

The Irish cutie – who underwent knee surgery earlier this year – admits he’s a bit hooked on the sport right now.

‘Thought I’d lost it since because of my operation, but the love for golf is back, can’t get enough of it!’ Niall Tweeted on Monday.

Meanwhile bandmate Liam, 20, has been chilling out on a yacht in Saint-Tropez.

The 1D star was seen smoking a cigarette as he walked around the vessel and bared his torso in knee-length shorts.

Tomorrow the group will kick off the North American leg of their Where We Are tour when they perform in Toronto.
