Rickie Fowler Plays a Round of Golf With a Dying Man

Fowler Dedicates Hero win to Dr. Reyes

Rickie Fowler is one best players on the PGA tour, but also one of the nicest. This heartwarming story will further that point.

About a month ago, Fowler traveled to Atlanta to play a round of golf with a man who was dying of pancreatic cancer. Unfortunately, right before the Hero World Challenge, Dr. Reyes lost his battle with cancer.

Fowler shared his experience with Dr. Reyes on his Instagram saying, “It was a day I will remember for the rest of my life!”

Fowler shot a final-round 11-under 61 that required just 21 putts to a four-shot victory at the Hero World Challenge. Fowler ended his post by dedicating his triumph to Dr. Reyes, and thanked Reyes for spending one of his last days with him.

“Thank you Dr. Reyes, and the win last week was for you!” Fowler said. “Rest In Peace and my thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends.”
