The PGA Tour made a young boy's dreams come true when they set up the trip of a life time, where 3-year-old Holden was flown out to Florida to get a tour of TPC Sawgrass and hit balls with Jim Furyk.

Holden has been battling with terminal cancer and after being on treatment for the past two years, chemotherapy is no longer effective, but that doesn't stop this brave young man from enjoying the sport that he loves.

After hearing his story, the PGA Tour planned an incredible golf experience for Holden and his family. Watch the video below to see how Holden got on in Florida:

"Thank you for making our son feel like a king. An experience he will never forget and memories for our family that will last forever," said Holden's father Chad in the comments on Twitter.

Golf fans flooded the comments on both Instagram and Twitter, sending Holden positive messages and applauding the PGA Tour for the incredible gesture.

"Another reason golf is the best sport going. Jim Furyk, thank you for taking the time to spend with that young boy. Thank you PGA for sharing. Makes me wonder why I get upset at a bad shot I made," said one golf fan.

"This is the kind of story that needs to be spread far and wide. What a fantastic little dude that has a love for this great game. Great job by all involved in making his trip so much fun," said another.
