We witnessed yet another example of what makes Tommy Fleetwood a devoted fan favorite at the BMW PGA Championship.
Ian St. John, an Irishman from Tramore who is paralyzed from the waist down, frequently participates in competitions for golfers with disabilities.
However, after explaining on social media that his para golfer wheelchair was too large to fit on a flight from Cork Airport to Liverpool, his story affected Fleetwood.
At Formby Hall, where six-time DP World Tour champion Fleetwood runs a golf academy, St. John was scheduled to compete in an EDGA (European Disabled Golf Association) competition.
Fleetwood felt compelled to act, so he contacted St John's family and extended an invitation for him to attend the BMW PGA Championship, the fourth Rolex Series match of the year at Wentworth Club.
The news of the generous deed pleased St John, who also missed the Premier League match between Liverpool and Aston Villa.
The Reds supporter and his wife Orla were at the game on Friday over the West Course.
The fact that St. John's wife had recently been cruelly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis added poignancy to the trip to Wentworth.
He was attending an EDGA event at Formby Hall, where TFA Southport is situated, therefore it touched a nerve that he got treated so poorly, Fleetwood said in a statement to the DP World Tour.
"Even though he supports Liverpool, it was a gesture we wanted to make with the DP World Tour, and we were thrilled he could come.
Fleetwood and his wife Clare received a message from St. John saying: "It's rare you meet people who are so generous, and Orla and I will forever be grateful for this."
