Rickie Fowler’s weekend at TPC Sawgrass didn’t exactly go as planned. He missed the cut at The Players Championship after an unfortunate tee stroke left his ball lodged in a palm tree, derailing an impressive Round 2 comeback attempt on Friday.

But on Thursday, Fowler found the time to make one his biggest (yet smallest) fans’ day.
Redick meet Rickie.
Rickie meet Redick.

There’s no better way to guarantee Redick stays a Rickie fan, and there’s no mystery as to why Fowler is such a fan favorite.
It might be easy to dismiss this type of thing as par for the course when you’re an internationally-recognized sports figure is, but don’t tell that to Rickie. And don’t tell that to Redick.
