You couldn't help but to feel for the kid. After all, this is The tournament, even for a kid from Northern Ireland. If you have ever stood on a tee box with anything more substantive than pride, or pride, if you are pretty prideful, at stake, you know what he was going through. He hit a shot I have personally hit plenty of times.
However, after the tournament, he didn't handle himself very 21 year oldish. At all. He stood like a man, answered all the questions sent his way. He did so with grace and maturity that will sustain him in years to come.
One picture says it all.
