Pic: Classy Rory McIlroy at the Irish Open

Classy in the sense that he’s a nice guy we mean, not really in the sense of his playing so far today.

The Irish golfer was spotted handing over one his balls to one lucky kid in the crowd at the Irish Open but, with the way that he’s playing at the minute, he may want to hand over his entire golf bag.

It also looks like the kid's dad is about to yoink it out of their hand but little does he know he's been nabbed on camera, the (maybe) thieving thiefer.

McIlroy currently stands on +2, six shots behind the leader Chris Paisley, but it’s Offaly man Shane Lowry who’s flying the flag for the Irish at the moment as he’s one shot behind the leader on -3.

Here’s hoping the rest of the local lads can follow in the same manner.

Hat-tip to Michael Delahunty who sent this in via Twitter. He’s actually at the Irish Open the lucky divil.
