And Another Good Sport

Imagine the scene, you've gone out for the day to enjoy the golf tournament, all's going well, the competition is hotting up. Then, without warning, you're struck on the head, everything goes dark, your legs buckle beneath you, and golf is suddenly the last thing on your mind. You come around to see a first aider heading towards you with a large bandage and a determined look in his eye, and the information that you were struck by a golf ball belted across the fairway by none other than Rory McIlroy. Not only that, but the whole thing was captured on camera.
That's precisely what happened to one young golfing fan at the Open Championship yesterday. The offending golfer made up for it though, by giving him a signed apology - on a golf glove! It's almost worth being struck on the head for a souvenir like that.
