Rory McIlroy has beaten just about every human on the planet, so for the latest European Tour challenge the Northern Irishman was tasked with going head-to-head with a cheeky swing robot at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Florida.

The Golf Laboratory Computer Controlled Hitting Machine - as it is officially known - proved to be quite the competitor for the two-time major winner, as they attempted to hit various targets on the driving range in the newest advert.

McIlroy is renowned for his debut TV appearance as a nine-year-old on the Kelly Show, where he confidently chipped golf balls into his mum Rosie's washing machine from all of 20 yards.

It was a training exercise that the likeable youngster used to practice regularly, and now at the age of 24, the world number two is at it again, partaking in a washing machine themed challenge - albeit this time on a slightly different scale.
