His trademark curly locks hidden under a baseball cap, the little lad concentrates on his stroke while enjoying the sunshine on the beach.
Commenting on the bright blue club 20 years later, McIlroy joked about how many of his Twitter followers had noticed that he was "ahead of the curve with the belly putter back then".
He also added: "Putting stroke still looks the same!"
The shot was captured years before McIlroy would, as a nine-year-old, impress thousands of viewers of the Kelly Show by chipping golf balls into a washing machine.
