Some of the biggest names in golf, including Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Jack Nicklaus, Louis Oosthuizen, Justin Thomas, Branden Grace and Ernie Els, joined 25 teams of amateurs Monday in the ninth annual Els for Autism Pro-Am at Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The event raised $1,015,000 for the Els for Autism Foundation.

The Pro-Am, which was founded by Els and Marvin R. Shanken, editor and publisher of Cigar Aficionado and Wine Spectator magazines, has funded a modern school for autistic children called the Els Center of Excellence in Jupiter, Florida. Cigar Aficionado has more.
