Oliver Ekman-Larsson apparently has a new fan in Hudson Swafford.

The PGA Tour golfer played the 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale wearing the Arizona Coyotes captain's jersey during the third round of the Phoenix Open on Saturday.

Tweet from @ArizonaCoyotes: Nice jersey, @Hud_swafford. 😉Hudson will head into Sunday tied for 3rd at the @WMPhoenixOpen at -14!

Swafford has been sporting Coyotes hats and other attire as part of a sponsorship agreement throughout the weekend.

Tweet from @ArizonaCoyotes: Heading into Day Two, he���s tied for 8th at -5. 🙌Good luck today, @Hud_swafford!

But on the famously rowdy hole, he put on the Arizona captain's Kachina jersey on the tee box, firing up the crowd. 

Swafford parred the hole, en route to a bogey-free round of 66, and entered Sunday's final round only two shots off the lead.
