"The BEST 5 minutes of my life": Young golfer lives dream alongside Tony Finau

Tony Finau is known as one of the most polite and engaging players on the PGA Tour, as well as one of the best golfers on the planet.

Finau is making his first appearance on tour at the World Wide Technology Championship since his tied 45th finish at the CJ Cup. Returning to Mexico will bring back great memories from both inside and outside of competition.

The PGA Tour has found fantastic footage of the World No. 10 spending time with a young golfer named Alex at El Camaleon Golf Club, the host of this week's event.

Alex was star-struck when he met the two-time PGA Tour winner and the young golfer gave Finau some tips on how to play the par-3 15th hole.

"I usually aim at the palm tree. For a pro like you, you'd want to draw it back in! - I just get lucky and hope it goes on the green."

Both players hit impressive shots to the green of the 155-yard hole and they both exchanged reads on their putts. Alex told Finau that the best part of his game is his driving.

"I'm probably going to cry when I get home! - These five minutes have been the best five minutes of my life," said Alex.

Finau certainly made Alex's day and he was all too pleased to spend time with the young superstar. Who knows, maybe we will see Alex in the winner's enclosure on the PGA Tour in the future?

As for the 32-year-old, he will still be reeling off Team USA's historic Ryder Cup victory over Europe last month, as well as his significant victory at the Northern Trust during the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

Footage like this from the PGA Tour certainly brings the players back down to earth and it shows how much of an example the stars of golf set.
