Rickie Fowler is making a habit of delivering when the pressure's on, and Monday was no different.

While attending Ernie Els' charity event with several other PGA Tour pros at the Old Palm Golf Club in South Florida, the 2015 Players champion made a hole-in-one, winning $1 million for the Els for Autism Foundation.

Wow...that was cool! #ElsForAutism

The Big Easy immediately ran toward Fowler and lifted him over his head in celebration, and can be heard calling him his "hero" in the video below.

Els later tweeted about the shot, reporting that it was from 113 yards.
