Lexi Thompson has a new tattoo to remember her 2016 Olympics experience

Lexi Thompson has a tattoo, and you're going to be able to see it on the golf course. The major winner decided to commemorate her 2016 Olympics experience in a way scores of other athletes, including Rickie Fowler, have: by getting a tattoo of the Olympic rings.

Thompson shared the image of the new tattoo on Instagram. It's on her left wrist, on the underside of her arm. Naturally, that will sometimes be covered up by a portion of golf glove. It's a reminder of the work that went into getting into the Olympics and what it means to represent the United States in the Games.

Golf is secure in the Olympics through 2024, with Tokyo hosting in 2020 and Paris hosting in 2024. Thompson is likely to represent the United States on both of those golf teams.
