Two things happened in the 10-second video below: Rory McIlroy gained a fan for life, and the game of golf gained a fan for life.

McIlroy is competing in the British Masters. As he was leaving the 15th hole, he gifted Henry, a young fan in attendance, his ball. Henry was understandably elated – just look at his face at the end of the clip.

Priceless. We’ve seen Rory be very generous with fans in the past. This is yet another example. McIlroy is 10-under par at the British Masters after three rounds.
