Rory McIlroy was quick to troll Ulster player Darren Cave on a Twitter Q&A session yesterday, but the Irish international responded in kind to put the golfer in his place.

Cave was in the BBC Northern Ireland studios where he took over their Twitter account to answer questions from the public under the hashtag #BBCAskDave

Still in high spirits after helping Europe to Ryder Cup success, the avid Ulster fan didn't miss the opportunity to poke fun at Cave.

"Are you still the tightest man on the Ulster squad?" he put to the centre.

"Are you the only millionaire who won't pay for tickets to watch Ulster," came the sharp response.
