Earlier this year, a Nike advertisement told us no cup was safe from Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy.

At 37 and 24, respectively, we would expect two of the game's biggest stars to have honed their craft by now. But what should we expect from 3-year-old Michael Patton of Dublin, Ireland? Apparently, more of the same.

The video below shows Michael hitting plastic balls in what appears to be a clothes hamper, time after time knocking it in the hole, much like his favorite golfer (McIlroy) does in the Nike commercial.

Move over, McIlroy, there's a new kid in town.
