PGA star/Cubs fan Luke Donald brought a bag of Cubs caps and gear to share with lucky fans
English pro golfer Luke Donald is a PGA star who spent his college days on a scholarship at Northwestern University.
It's that promixity to the general Chicago area, as well as being the first amateur to win the Chicago Open (in 2000) and eventually meeting his wife, Chicago native Diane, that helped make Donald a longtime Cubs supporter.
It's why tweets like this, which he sent during that absolutely thrilling Game 7 between the Cubs and Indians, make sense:

Followed by a celebratory tweet after that final play:
Why I love sports, exhilarating, heartbreaking, gut wrenching, raw emotion - it never fails. Hell yeah Cubbies #WorldSeriesChamps— Luke Donald (@LukeDonald) November 3, 2016
Well, Donald is currently taking part in the Waste Management Phoenix Open and, just because he felt like it, he showed up on Friday with a bag full of Cubs paraphernalia, which he happily handed out to fans at the event:
The World Series-champion Cubs have now successfully infiltrated the PGA Tour.
