Why does Rickie Fowler have a ‘G’ tattoo on his arm?

You may have noticed Rickie Fowler is sporting a new tattoo these days. It's a block G that can be found on the underside of his left arm, near the elbow.

But why a G? What does it mean? Fowler explained at the Presidents Cup that it's in honor of Georgia Veach, daughter of Chad Veach, pastor of The City Church in Seattle, and his wife Julia, according to the Associated Press. At 4 months old, Georgia was diagnosed with lissencephaly, also known as “smooth brain," a rare brain disorder defined by the absence of folds in the cerebral cortex. Fowler met Veach through Bubba Watson.

The Detusche Bank Championship winner isn't the only person with a "G" tattoo. Singer Justin Bieber has one as well.

This also isn't the only ink Fowler has on him. He has another tattoo in memory of his late swing coach Barry McDonnell.
