Rickie Fowler, fresh off a tie for eighth at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, made a hole-in-one Monday at a charity golf event to earn the Els for Autism Foundation $1 million.
A bevy of PGA Tour pros helped Fowler and Els celebrate the ace that came from 113 yards on a "bonus" 19th hole during the Els for Autism Pro-am at the Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, according to social media accounts.
"Kind of nothing to lose," Fowler told the Golf Channel after making the hole-in-one. "Just having fun. It's a small target. It doesn't happen very often. Pretty cool to do that for Ernie and the foundation."
According to its website, the Els for Autism Foundation was founded in 2009 by Ernie and Liezl Els. Their son, Ben, has been diagnosed with the disorder that affects one in 68 children in the United States.
