Rory McIlroy grants fan's 'Wish of a Lifetime' at the Travelers Championship

Before Rory McIlroy played in his first Travelers Championship yesterday, he made time to brighten a fan's day.

McIlroy, through the "Wish of a Lifetime" foundation, met elderly fan Noreen -- also from McIlroy's native Ireland -- and fulfilled a long-time dream of hers. The non-profit organization makes an effort to change the cultural view on aging by granting seniors' wishes and giving them more reasons to live a life of purpose.

McIlroy posted the meeting to his social media accounts, expressing Noreen's love of golf and his own pleasure in meeting her.



Noreen received an autographed Travelers Championship tournament flag from McIlroy, but she also got a memory to last a lifetime.
