American Rickie Fowler enjoyed an incredible moment yesterday when his incredible hole-in-one earned $1m for Ernie Els' autism charity.

Fowler, playing alongside several PGA Tour players and celebrities, took part in the annual Ernie Els for Autism event at Old Palm Golf Club in Florida.

There was a 19th hole challenge after the players had concluded their 18-hole rounds. If any player could make a 111-yard shot, that would trigger a $1 million donation to support Els for Autism programs and education.

Up stepped Rickie Fowler:

Judging by his Instagram posts, Fowler really enjoyed the moment.


Wow...that was cool! #ElsForAutism
