Rickie Fowler takes Olympic-sized dive into PGA Championship house [Video]

Rickie Fowler takes Olympic-sized dive into PGA Championship house [Video]

The Russian judge gives it a 10.0.

Rickie Fowler showed a little of his daredevil side on Tuesday ahead of the PGA Championship when he jumped off a second-story deck and into the pool of his rental house for the year's final major.

Bubba Watson tweeted out video of the leap. (Bubba, turn your phone the other way!)

Not a bad dive. Dive is a strong word. It was a jump. Hitting the water is a definite plus.

Might seem a little dangerous for a pro golfer to do this, particularly with Thomas Levet losing several months of his career due to a silly on-course leap after winning last year's French Open. Then again, Fowler rides motorbikes.
