Just look at the joy on his face.

A young golf fan got a very special memento from his trip to see the British Masters Close House today.

He held out his hand for a shake from Rory McIlroy as he walked off the 15th green but the four-time major winner handed over his ball instead.

It made the youngster's day.

McIlroy shot a stunning 64 today to lie just two shots off the lead held by Sweden's Robert Karlsson alongside Offaly's Shane Lowry, Chris Hanson, George Coetzee and David Lingmerth.
