Video: Dad builds five-year-old son £6k putting green so he can emulate idol Rory McCilroy

Have your say

The dad of a five-year-old golfing prodigy has built his son a £6,500 state-of-the-art putting green to help him emulate his idol Rory McIlroy.

Golfing mad Rob Moore splashed the cash to install the five-hole green, complete with specialist artificial grass, on his front lawn so his son Bobby can practice every day. And it seems all the practice is paying off after Bobby hit his first hole in one at the tender age of three and has won competitions against children aged 12. He is so good that he has been allowed to play in competitions normally reserved for children aged six and above.
