We’ve seen how good Rory McIlroy can be with kids quite a bit recently. The European Tour’s 9-year-old correspondent, Billy, conducted one of the most entertaining interviews of the year with McIlroy.

Rory was the one asking questions last night on Ireland’s “Late Late Toy Show,” surprising this huge Rory McIlroy fan, Charlie Smyth, 9, as Charlie was playing the EA Sports Rory McIlroy video game. Kudos to McIlroy for spending some of his offseason giving back to his fans.

Imagine being surprised as a little kid on national TV by your favorite golfer? Charlie did well to engage Rory despite being in shock. And how impressive is this kid’s knowledge of Rory’s achievements?
