Danielle Kang is one of the most recognised players on the LPGA Tour, with three Solheim Cup appearances, five LPGA Tour titles and a Major victory to her name. Not only is the American a very, very good golfer, but also, just an all-round good person, as this video from her social media proves.

Featuring on the cover of Golf Digest's newest issue, Kang spotted a handful of the magazines at a shop whilst walking through JFK Airport. After spotting them, the former Major winner couldn't resist adding a little touch to the front image, signing five copies for future golf fans to find.

Posting on her Social pages, Kang captioned the video - "should I keep doing this at every airport I go to? #JFK #signedcopy #neargateB30 @GolfDigest", the answers in the comments, understandably, were a resounding yes!

Five-time PGA Tour winner, Kevin Na, responded by saying "Yes! If I see one signed, I’ll buy one too!" with Amanda Balionis simply replying "yes, 100%"

So, you may wonder what actually happened to the copies that Kang signed at the Airport? Well, one Instagram user by the name of @bobbycalero, actually purchased one of the magazines, uploading a selfie of it with Kang's Instagram handle.

Could we see more golfers doing this in the future? I for one hope so, I mean, how awesome would it be to pick up your favourite golf magazine and find that the star on the cover has legitimately signed it. What a feeling that would be!
