Jack Dirkin is a name you should jot down for future reference.

The five-year-old from Telford in Shropshire, England is already being looked at as the next Rory McIlroy and it's easy to see why.

The youngster has already developed a swing that most professionals would be envious of.

He will compete at the World Under-6 Championship at historic Pinehurst in North Carolina this summer.

His coach Matt Lea told Sky Sports News HQ: "The best thing is, he doesn't know how good he is. He's got fantastic ability and hits the ball as far as boys twice his age. It looks effortless and he's a natural."

Here's a video of him in action
