People shared and liked the video on Twitter, some replying as well. Fans commented about how JT liked the fans t-shirt with his face on it, others simply appreciating the gesture.

Eventually, even the PGA Tour shared the video.

Soon enough, Thomas spots them, handing over the shoes to the child with a ‘here you go dude’. The father remains surprised, asking Thomas if he was indeed serious. “Probably going to be a little bit before they fit you but that’s all you,” Thomas adds as he walks away, the dad thanking JT.

The kid then walks over before the video comes to an end, showing the new shoes off in the camera.
