Viktor Hovland is one of the finest young golfers on the planet but it appears he is humble, too.
The 24-year-old has a bright future and already has a number of high profile wins behind him.
He has already won once in the fall swing of the PGA Tour, taking down the World Wide Technology Championship in Mayakoba, Mexico.
Hovland even managed to claim the win using someone else's driver after Danny Lee snapped his on the range after round two.
The Norwegian, who made his Ryder Cup debut in September, is one of 20 players pegging it up at the Hero World Challenge this week.

Of course, the attention is will
probably be on Tiger Woods as the tournament host, who will provide an update on his future aspirations.
But it appears that Hovland is happy being the humble dude, without social media, just travelling around playing the game he loves.
Hovland was pictured at the airport on the way to the event by the golf content specialist Joy Chakravarty:
It’s incredible how down to earth Twitterless Victor is. Just saw him at Nassau airport. The girl behind hm asked what he did.— Joy Chakravarty (@TheJoyofGolf) November 28, 2021
Hovland: ‘I live in Oklahoma and play a bit of golf’.

Why shouldn't be down to earth? He has just landed.— Benny Frank the 3rd (@BennyFrank3rd) November 29, 2021
Seriously. Saw him play Friday in St Augustine, he just chilled and enjoyed himself with his buddies.— Mike Salik (@BigMikeNjax) November 29, 2021
Met him at Karsten Creek two years ago. Stand up guy, chatted for a little bit about golf and PGA life. A fav of mine!— word (@kileyword) November 29, 2021
Too right. Hovland's response is just priceless.
Hovland is 11/1 to take down the title in Albany.
There are no FedExCup points awarded at this event, but world rankings are affected.
Hovland has won three times on the PGA Tour and once on the European Tour.
