Little kid asks Rory McIlroy about his ex-fiancee, Tiger Woods & Donald Trump in the year's most entertaining interview

November 18, 2016

These days, no one asks tougher questions of golfers than European Tour reporter Billy. And he can get away with it. Because he's nine years old.

The innocent-looking interviewer is back, and his latest subject victim is Rory McIlroy. Billy questioned the four-time major champ on a variety of topics, from Donald Trump to Tiger Woods to McIlroy's ex-fiancee, Caroline Wozniacki. Well, sort of.

Billy made McIlroy squirm (and laugh) by asking him who "his favorite girl tennis player" is? Check out that hilarious/awkward exchange at the 2:20 mark, but seriously, just watch the entire six-minute interview that also includes the good-natured McIlroy nearly holing a wedge shot and the two doing cannonballs into a swimming pool:

As for Tiger, Billy asks, "If I meet him, should I ask him for career advice or chat-up lines?" "Chat-up lines," McIlroy responds. "He's been pretty successful in both areas."

And what about the President-elect of the United States? Who would McIlroy text back first, Trump or Niall Horan? "Text Niall back first. Let Trump wait a little bit. Let him sweat it out."

Finally, the interview concludes with Billy giving McIlroy a box of socks as an early Christmas present with his wedding to Erica Stoll approaching.


Why? "Just in case you get cold feet again."

Brilliantly done, Billy.
