Watch: Rickie Fowler's fish spa reaction Instagram video compilation
Series: Golf Buzz
Published: Thursday, October 24, 2013 | 8:44 a.m.
Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson and many other PGA Tour stars are in Malaysia this week competing in the CIMB Classic.
Early Monday morning -- early evening in Kuala Lumpur -- Fowler sent out a tweet that featured an Instagram video compilation of himself, Watson, Fowler's caddie Joe Skovron, Aaron Baddeley, Keegan Bradley and others receiving what is known as a fish spa.
Here's the video:
The reactions on the faces of those taking part are priceless. It's easy to understand why, too, once you learn exactly what a "fish spa" is (it's also one of those items you can file under "things I never thought I'd look up for PGA.com").
A fish spa -- as the video sort of shows -- involves sitting around a small "pond." You put your feet in the pond while "doctor fish" -- tiny, gross looking fish that almost look like tadpoles -- feed on your skin. Yes, feed on your skin!
Basically, it's meant to clean your feet like some kind of weird pedicure.
What does this have to do with golf? Absolutely nothing, other than the fact that golfers are featured in Fowler's hilarious compilation.
