It's not uncommon to walk around a PGA Tour event and see people carrying around a pin flag with a bunch of autographs on it as a momento from their trip. One kid at last weekend's The Barclays in Paramus, New Jersey, got a different type of keepsake. 

As you can see in the video below, Ben Crane gave out his number to a young fan. 


Like the other kid asked in the video, how did he get Crane's number? It was actually pretty simple.  

Granted, you probably won't get a Tour player's phone number every time you ask, but you may have a nice conversation with him if he has the time. 

I'm curious if the kid has reached out to Crane yet. If so, was it a call or text? What did he say? 

There are so many questions. Maybe I should give Crane my number.
