A Dublin schoolboy became Rory McIlroy's unofficial double after clinching a role in Nike's new 'Ripple' advertisement.

Millions of viewers will see Charlie Quinn portraying the Northern Ireland golfer at 10-years-old, as he dreamed of emulating the success of his boyhood hero Tiger Woods.

The advert will be broadcast on Sky Sports, ESPN and the Golfing Channel throughout the Masters this weekend.
