Check out Rickie Fowler’s Puma API gear designed to honor Arnold Palmer

Published

on

Rickie Fowler heads to Bay Hill for the Arnold Palmer Invitational this week, and he will sport a Puma Arnold Palmer P Cap, Limited Edition Ignite Proadapt footwear, and carry a custom Cobra x Vessel Stand Bag, all of which are to honor the late Arnold Palmer and all of which will be available for the public to purchase.

A limited number of Fowler’s custom Arnold Palmer items will be available both at CobraGolf.com and at select retailers. While a small number of custom caps, stand bags and shoes, personally autographed by Fowler will be available to purchase at PumaGolf.com

100 percent of the proceeds from the sales will go towards the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation.

ARNOLD PALMER IGNITE PROADAPT Shoes – $250

 

 

The Arnold Palmer Ignite shoes feature the signature Umbrella logo in a repeating pattern on the heel and interior of the shoe and also contain the King’s signature on the side of the shoe.

The shoe contains a custom pink sock liner, which is an ode to Palmer’s love of the color pink. One features the famous umbrella logo while the other features the iconic Arnie quote “I never felt like I didn’t have a chance to win.”

The shoe features a Green PUMA Formstripe, Cat logo and heel, while coloured lace tips complete the shoes look.

ARNOLD PALMER SNAPBACK CAP – $40

The hat which features the iconic umbrella-logo layered on the embroidery P is available in three different colorways – all white, white/green, and pink.

COBRA + VESSEL Tour Stand Bag

This stand bag comes in a white and green colorway, with the Umbrella Logo displayed throughout the bag. The bag features heavy-duty zippers, durable PU material and a single strap for easy carrying.

The stand bag comes in a lightweight package, weighing 60% lighter than a regular Tour Staff bag.

Those who donate as little as $10 this week to the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation will be entered into a sweepstake. The winner of the sweepstake will receive a Roundtrip airfare for two, hotel accommodation, and a round of golf at the prestigious Bay Hill Club & Lodge. The winner will also get a personal tour of Mr Palmer’s office, Rickie Fowler signed custom Arnold Palmer gear and additional PUMA gear. Full detail of the sweepstake can be found here.

    Those are awesome. It’s about time these companies made their guys carry stand bags. That’s what people who buy bags use. Not staff bags! I saw earlier this year at I believe Farmers they did a bag…. sold them online for $599 and were sold out by Sunday!

    Nice looking gear but the snap-back cap is a little pricey at $40 bucks.

      Proceeds go to the Arnold and Winnie Palmer foundation… a pretty good time to splurge on a cool looking product!

Golf Avenue Find of the Day: Nike T60 fairway wood

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we have partnered with Golf Avenue to offer our readers additional value on trade-ins, as well as discounts on used clubs, because if there is anything golf gear heads love, it’s tinkering and testing—both new and old equipment.

Golf Avenue is one of the largest online retailers for used clubs, and with that, there are lots of great deals, and fun clubs to be found, and since we like gear just as much as you—we’re doing some digging for you.

The find of the day – Nike T60 5 Wood

The key feature of the T60 fairways wood is a 60-gram tungsten plug on the sole to lower the center of gravity, increase launch, and boost forgiveness. This particular club has outstanding project potential since the head is in great shape, and it is currently shafted with a stock Nike “ladies” flex.

You can find this club for purchase now at Golf Avenue: Nike T60 Fairway Wood.

Be sure to use the link: GolfWRX.com/GolfAvenue to find out more details of our partnership!

From KiwiNick

“It’s taken me nearly two years to land on a #witb that feels fairly permanent. I sometimes add a 2H (Apex 19, 18*) when it’s really blowing outside as the 5W can lose a little distance off the tee into the breeze.

One of my favorite clubs is the 58* PM Grind. I’ve never played with a wedge that was so good from dry sand and mid – deep rough. If you haven’t tried one, you need to demo it. Phil is on to something with these wedges.

The other revelation has been the Tensei Blue AV X flex shafts. I fight a draw that can turn into a low spin hook if my strike heads to the toe. The Tensei Blue is so linear in the way it loads and unloads that I can swing at 110-115mph and have more than enough to make the shaft work. The combo in driver and 3w (which is used 95% as a tee club) has lifted my ‘fairways found’ stats dramatically!”

Get submitting your WITB in our forum as we’ll be publishing more and more of them on our front page over the coming days and weeks.

Feel free to make it your own too by including some thoughts on your setup, your age, handicap, etc. Anything you feel is relevant!
