A young Dundee golf super fan has been surprised with the Claret Jug in his bedroom.
Mum Laura Marshall shared a video of her son Joshua arriving home to find the trophy sitting on his side table.
This is fantastic Laura! Please direct message us your details and we will see if we can add a little something for your sons collection! ?

The 11-year-old Dundee lad loved his experience at July’s Carnoustie Open so much that he asked his parents to transform his bedroom to keep his memories alive.
Joshua’s dad duly obliged and the wall of his bedroom was decked out in memorabilia including two signed flags, a signed glove, a signed hat, his ticket and a ‘quiet please’ marshal sign.
The blue background of the wall was also adorned with the official Open logo and Laura shared the snap on Twitter which quickly went viral.
The R&A later got in touch on Twitter with Laura and asked her if they could “add a little something” for Joshua’s collection.
WOW what a 24 hours!!!
Huge Thank you to @RandA & @TheOpen for this huge surprise for Joshua, The Claret Jug in his Bedroom & the bag of open goodies – Such a kind gesture, and one we are very grateful for. Thank you to everyone to you all kind responses too! #TheOpen pic.twitter.com/yDjKcKyMCF

Laura praised the “kind gesture” from golf’s governing body and said they were very grateful.
The R&A sent a film crew up to Joshua’s house on Tuesday night to record the special event.
This reaction though ? Joshua genuinely had no idea the Claret Jug was there! pic.twitter.com/us6r9NnYLy
