Last time we checked in with Rory McIlroy he was the No. 1 ranked golfer in the world, and interviewing One Direction’s Niall Horan at the BMW PGA Pro-Am. Now, Northern Ireland’s most famous sportsman is ranked No. 2 and he’s back on the receiving side of questions — this time posited by 9-year-old European Tour reporter Billy at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.

European Tour's Billy interviews Rory McIlroy in Dubai

''My dad was constantly telling me, 'You got to get your hair cut. You got to get your hair cut.' And I kept defying him, and I should have listened to him.''

— Rory McIlroy, on his earlier hair style

Billy kicked off the interview by asking McIlroy to explain his formerly wild hairdo, and later got the golfer to admit Donald Trump has tried harder to be his friend than has Horan.

In earlier interviews, Billy grilled golfers Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston, Graeme McDowell and Thomas Bjorn.
