The four-time Major winner treated two of his biggest fans to signed goodies at the WGC-Mexico Championship

WATCH: Rory McIlroy Cheers Up Crying Fans

Rory McIlroy finished second at the WGC-Mexico Championship and was signing autographs after his round when it came to his attention that one of his fans was in tears that Rory didn't get the victory.

"He's crying because you lost," a volunteer said.

McIlroy replied, "It's ok it was still a good week!"

McIlroy took the crying fan, who was dressed as him, and his brother, dressed as Rickie Fowler, to the locker room where he gave them a glove, hat and shoes all signed by him.

Thank you for all your support this week," McIlroy said to the brothers.
