VIDEO: Rickie Fowler scores $1 million ace for Ernie Els’ charity; crowd goes wild
If you’re curious about Rickie Fowler’s charitable abilities, well one shot on Monday proved that they’re pretty good.
The 27-year-old was at Old Palm Golf Club for the Cigar Aficionado-Wine Spectator Pro-Am – a pro-am event for Ernie Els’ charity, Els for Autism. All players on hand got a shot to win $1 million for Els’ charity if they could score a hole-in-one on the 19th hole.
Up stepped Fowler, and from 111 or 113 yards (depending on the account), he delivered:
Let’s just say the crowd at Old Palm was pretty excited. Especially Els, as you can see below:

Oh, and Fowler, as reported by Tim Rosaforte, wasn’t even wearing golf shoes or using his own club (Luke Donald’s pitching wedge officially recorded the ace).
Pretty cool moment, Rickie.
