Rory McIlroy is one of the more popular players with golf fans, and apparently dogs, too.
While waiting on the 18th tee at the Dunhill Links Championship at Carnoustie, a black labrador approached the No. 1-ranked golfer. The result was one of the best 16-second clips you'll see all day.
What seals this as a great video is the fact that Rory uses his Saint Bernard headcover for his 3-wood to play with his new friend.

It's clear by Rory's reaction that he enjoyed the visit, and it's good to see Rory's laid-back side on the course. After so many weeks of high-pressure, competitive golf, it's a nice change to see Rory enjoying moments like this while playing with his father, Gerry.
McIlroy finished his first round with 1-over 73, and made just one birdie.
