With an entire week to take in all the Olympic activities he can before the men’s golf event starts Thursday, Rickie Fowler has become something of an unofficial cheerleader and ambassador for both Team USA and Olympic golf, at large.

The latest stops on his personal fun-times tour came Tuesday night, when he and U.S. teammate Bubba Watson had dinner with U.S. synchoronized divers Sam Dorman, David Boudia and Steele Johnson and watched as Michael Phelps took home gold medals in both the 200m butterfly and the 4x200m freestyle.

Watson, the two-time Masters champion, tees off at 8:14 a.m. ET on Thursday alongside Germany’s Martin Kaymer and India’s Anirban Lahiri. Fowler will go off at 9:58 with Great Britian’s Justin Rose and Venezuela’s Jhonattan Vegas. For more featured tee times, click here.
