The No. 2 ranked golfer in the world surprised “Mighty Meg” and her twin brother, Brendan, by inviting them to walk alongside him inside the ropes during the pro-am on Wednesday, August 7. The duo accompanied the 2017 champion of THE NORTHERN TRUST and 21-time PGA TOUR winner for an entire hole, and Megan even had a chance to hit a putt.
