Pro golfers Ricki Fowler, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas visit the Columbus Zoo

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A few big name golfers put down their clubs during a break to spent time at The Columbus Zoo this week.

Golf pros Ricki Fowler, Jordan Spieth, and Justin Thomas spent time making new furry friends.

Fowler’s girlfriend, pole vaulter Allison Stokke, joined him at the zoo. She jokingly said they wanted to take home a pair of cheetah cubs.

Oddly enough the @columbus_zoo declined our request to take them home 🤷🏻‍♀️
