Martin Necas and Sebastian Aho made a new friend at Old Chatham Golf Club in Durham, North Carolina on Monday.

The Carolina Hurricanes forwards were joined on the green by none other than international pop sensation Harry Styles. 

Necas posted a photo of him, Aho and Styles to his Instagram with the caption, "Golden day" in reference to Styles' popular song, "Golden."

And as the song goes, they were golden.

Necas will hear all of Styles' songs when he and his girlfriend attend the show, which they've had tickets for. Styles plays PNC Arena as a part of his "Love On" tour Tuesday night, but after the 27-year-old got to town a day early, Styles' representatives, Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon and Hurricanes advisor Justin Williams connected to set a tee time.

"He's so famous, I didn't know what to expect," Necas told the Hurricanes' website. "He's just a normal guy. He was humble, making jokes and it surprised me. He's one of the best singers in the world and is also incredibly nice."

According to Aho, the singer has a good swing, too.

"Now I'm really interested in going [to the concert] because [golfing] was such a great time."
