Eventually, the PGA Tour even shared the video.

“There he is, see him right there,” says the father and points to Thomas, who enters the picture, where the boy replies with an amorous ‘no way’ while he points to his new golf shoes.

Thomas soon discovers them and hands the child the shoes with a ‘Here it goes, buddy’. The father remains surprised and asks Thomas if he was really serious. β€œIt will probably take a while to fit you, but that’s all,” Thomas adds as he walks away, and the father thanks JT.

The kid then walks by before the video ends and shows the new shoes in the camera.

The child also met Thomas personally, who eventually posted a photo of it on his Instagram story. He poses with the young fan and writes: This wins my award as the favorite shirt of saying. The shirt was sort of a collage of Thomas’ pictures.
