Some of the world best golfers are gathering for the start of the Irish Open in County Kildare, but on Wedneday the pre-tournament pro-am took place.

It was hosted by world number three Rory McIlroy, and saw a long list of celebrities taking to the course.

McIlroy also invited 13-year-old player Tom McKibbin, from Newtownabbey in County Antrim, for a round.

The BBC's Ireland correspondent Chris Buckler went to meet and caddy for the rising star.
