According to the British player, he has very few hats with him and that’s why he can’t give it to him. However, Andy later changed his mind, as he felt bad about the kid. So, the Brit gave his hat to the kid. Later, he jokingly said to the kid, “If I run out of hats though, might need to bring it back to me.”
