Three-year-old Michael Patton sinks living room chip shots with joyful ease in a now-viral YouTube video.

His dad, Rob Patton, told Storyful that Michael began hitting plastic golf balls through a round opening in his playhouse, prompting him to take out the camera.

Then the kid got serious, making several in a row to his own delight.

Michael, of Dublin, Ireland, says his favorite golfer is Rory McIlroy, but the slumping former No. 1 might wish he were as hot as Michael.

As impressive as Michael's demonstration is, he better get moving if he wants to be a true prodigy. After all, Tiger Woods was showing off his skills on national television by the time he was 2.
