Arnold Palmer’s legacy lived on at Bay Hill for the first Arnold Palmer In­vi­ta­tional since his pass­ing. Through­out the week Rickie wore the iconic um­brella logo on his hat and polo, and on Wed­nes­day, Fowler put on a com­mem­o­ra­tive pair of PUMA Golf IG­NITE Hi-Tops fea­tur­ing iconic images of the leg­endary Palmer. The cus­tom PUMA Golf Hi-Tops were de­signed and cre­ated by Do­minic Cham­brone, also known as The Shoe Sur­geon, as com­mis­sioned by PUMA Golf. Only two pairs of the shoes ex­ist – one Rickie wore, and the other comes in a cus­tom wood en­graved box with Arnie’s sig­na­ture and dates of life, and per­son­ally au­to­graphed by Rickie, was auc­tioned off on eBay.com and raised US$25,300.00 for Arnie’s Army Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion. "I feel priv­i­leged to have known Arnie and be able to call him a friend. I wanted to do some­thing to cel­e­brate what he did on the course and more im­por­tantly how he used his plat­form to ben­e­fit oth­ers through his Foun­da­tion,” said Fowler. “He is the King af­ter all!!"
