Rickie Fowler's biggest change this off-season? A new tattoo

January 06, 2016

Rickie Fowler wasn't one of the names linked to any big equipment changes. And he didn't go through any big swing overhauls with Butch Harmon during the off-season. But there is one noticeable difference for Fowler in 2016: A new tattoo.

Fowler posted a photo (although he could have zoomed in more) of his new ink on his arm and explained why he had it done:

Aw, that's sweet. And that's great placement. The inside of the left bicep is prime skin real estate for a golfer.

It's also not the first time Fowler has gotten a tattoo in honor of someone. At the Presidents Cup, he unveiled a "G" on his left elbow -- a sign of support for Georgia Veach, a young girl who was diagnosed with a rare brain disorder and the daughter of Seattle-based pastor Chad Veach.
