Fowler helped surprise a family with their father, Sergeant First Class Bryane Greene, who recently returned from deployment, during the pro-am for the Quicken Loans National Wednesday.

SFC Greene had been serving in Afghanistan and Kuwait for the last 3 1/2. Quicken Loans and the American Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces helped reunite SFC Greene with his daughter, Zshanea, and son, Bryane Greene Jr. He was also reunited with his cousins JeNai Howard and Narryn and Robin Fisher.

SFC Greene caddied for Fowler on the 17th and 18th holes. After the 18th, they walked off the green to surprise his family. Cameras were on site to capture the heartwarming reunion.

The Quicken Loans National has a history of honoring troops, which is something Tiger Woods, whose foundation runs the event, has long been passionate about. The tournament has handed out more than 300,0000 complementary tickets to members of the armed forces over the years.
