This was Rickie Fowler on the par-3 16th hole of the Masters. Behind him was his biggest fan. Fowler is sponsored by Puma and known for his fluorescent colors and flamboyant style. This little kid is all about that, too. He had on his magenta and orange checkered shirt and magenta hat and was all ready for his moment to see his favorite player. Pretty sweet that he came so close to the golfer.
