Rickie Fowler paying tribute to Arnold Palmer at Bay Hill
PGA Tour player Rickie Fowler once again will personally honor the late, great Arnold Palmer this week at The King’s signature event, the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club and Lodge in Orlando, Fla.
Fowler will team with his sponsor, Puma, and the Arnold Palmer Foundation to pay homage to Palmer, Latrobe’s native son.
Fowler’s custom-designed apparel, shoes and staff bag will be decorated with Palmer’s familiar and iconic, red, white, yellow and green umbrella logo.
Fowler has been known to tip his cap to former players and venues. Some will remember his similar tribute to the late Payne Stewart during the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst. He wore a pair of plus-four pants, slightly longer than Stewart’s trademark knickers.
Stewart won the U.S. Open at Pinehurst in 1999.
A limited number of Fowler’s “AP” items will be available at select retail stores. One-hundred percent of the sales go to the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation.
