Watch as Rory McIlroy makes this young fan’s day

Rory McIlroy

This young golf fan was probably the happiest person at the BMW Championship in Colorado yesterday.

As Rory McIlroy walked past him at the 7th hole, he handed his gold ball to the young boy. That simple gesture produced a great reaction from the boy, who no doubt will become one of Rory’s biggest fans!

Many of us will remember looking up to a sports star or musician in our youth in the hope of someday meeting them for real.
