Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler

Justin Thomas knocked his costume for Halloween out of the park, dressing up as good buddy Rickie Fowler.

Does any group of guys on the PGA Tour have more fun than the #SB2K16 boys (Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Smylie Kaufman)?

Fowler and Thomas hung out together on Halloween and snapped this shot of Fowler in a USA onesie, while Thomas nailed his "Rickie Fowler" costume:

Kaufman, meanwhile, decided to go as Harambe -- the gorilla that was shot after a child fell in his enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo in May. If you're part of the "bro culture" like these guys are, you'd know that even in death, "Harambe" has taken on a life of his own via social media channels.

Believe it or not, Kaufman's Harambe effort was pretty tame compared to others that are out there.


Harambe loved Natural Light. #beerofchampions #ripharambe

For his part, we haven't been able to find any kind of Halloween get-up for Spieth. If he was looking for ideas, we would have suggested going as a Masters champion or a U.S. Open champion.

Multiple PGA Tour winner Jonathan Byrd's son, Jackson, is giving a nod to the late Arnold Palmer with his Halloween costume this year.

Jonathan Byrd is a five-time winner on the PGA Tour.

At the 2010 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, Byrd won with a walk-off hole-in-one.

This Halloween, Byrd's son -- Jackson -- aced his costume with a tribute to the late Arnold Palmer.

Check it out:

Pink polo. Umbrella pin. Cardigan sweater. Arnold Palmer drink.

Nailed it.
