The British Masters gets underway Thursday morning at Woburn Golf Club in England, but the shot of the tournament might already have been struck.
During his practice round earlier today, Graeme McDowell found himself in a little tree trouble. The shot he faced looked extra tricky, so the former U.S. Open champ and Ryder Cup hero asked for a little help.
Up stepped a little guy named Rhys, who showed no fear. And without so much as a practice swing, Rhys took G-Mac's club and whacked the ball right back out into play.
And as good as the shot was, the high-five that the two shared after was even better.
McDowell made a fan for life and, hey, golf might have found a new star. Looks like young Rhys is someone we all ought to keep an eye on.
