Rickie Fowler hit the best golf shot of his life on Monday at the annual Cigar Aficionado-Wine Spectator Pro-Am to benefit Ernie Els for Autism at Old Palm Golf Club in Florida.
Fowler, along with a number of other pros and celebrities, took a crack at a 113-yard shot that, if they aced, would raise $1 million for the research and education programs done through Els for Autism. After a number of players, including Rory McIlroy, tried and couldn’t make the ace, Fowler stepped up. But first, he changed out of his golf shoes. And he decided to use Luke Donald’s pitching wedge.
