Just days after took a grilling from a little kid about his ex-fiancee Caroline Wozniacki and other topics all in good humour as part of the European Tour’s ‘Little Interviews’ series, the 27-year-old once again showed what an excellent ambassador he is for the sport.

That ball ended up with a young spectator and, in a picture posted to Twitter by ESPN senior golf writer Jason Sobel, McIlroy didn’t just stop giving there. Check out this letter.
