Like the fans who line the fairways of Bay Hill this week and those who watch the Arnold Palmer Invitational on television, Cobra Puma Golf and Rickie Fowler will have the tournament’s namesake in mind.
To honour one of golf’s greats, Fowler will once again don a limited-edition collection of gear at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Throughout the week, Fowler will wear accessories and use gear that was inspired by the life of his friend and mentor, Arnold Palmer, including a new API Cobra x Vessel Stand Bag, special headwear and a pair of Ignite Proadapt Palmer shoes.
Puma will also sell a limited number of the same custom gear Fowler will be wearing and other distinctive items online and at select retailers.
Additionally, PUMA has partnered with the Arnold Palmer team to once again raise funds for the Arnold and Winnie Palmer Foundation, creating the Ultimate Golf Package that will be included in a sweepstakes and open to anyone who makes a donation to support the Foundation.
A limited number of Puma API caps, shoes, stand and staff bags, personally autographed by Fowler, will also be included in the grand prize and as smaller prizes for donations. Sweepstakes will also include a trip for the winner and a guest to Bay Hill for a private tour and a round of golf.

The 2020 Puma Golf API Limited Edition Collection includes the following gear:
Ignite Proadapt Palmer Shoes
The Ignite Proadadapt shoes were designed to provide stability, power, and comfort demanded by the world’s best athletes.
Featuring the same comfort and performance-driven construction Rickie Fowler has trusted since the model’s debut, the Ignite Proadadapt Palmer are designed to pay homage to Mr. Palmer’s legendary golf career and love of aviation.
The shoes’ colourway is inspired by Mr. Palmer’s favourite plane to fly and come in a classy white colorway with blue accents and a silver form stripe.
Displays “N1AP” on the medial side, the tail number of Mr. Palmer’s plane.
With six “windows” on the lateral size representing the 6 windows on Palmer’s favourite plane, the first production Cessna 750 Citation X.
The sockliner features Mr. Palmer’s unmistakable signature and the Puma cat logo.
API CAMO P110 Snapback Cap
Available in five colourways (White/Arnie Camo, Light Blue/Arnie Camo, White/Pink Arnie Camo and Black/Arnie Camo, Grey/Purple Arnie Camo).
The purple is in honour of international women’s day which takes place during the 2020 API.

N1AP Rope 110 Cap

Features tail number of Mr. Palmer’s plane in an all-over design.
100 per cent polyester construction.
Bay Hill/Latrobe City Caps
Available in either a Bay Hill (White with Pink lettering and green accent) or Latrobe (White with Green Lettering and pink accent) these caps represent two places synonymous with Mr. Palmer’s legacy.
API Cobra x Vessel Stand Bag
This Limited-Edition Cobra x Vessel collab Tour stand bag comes in a white and green colourway, featuring a unique Arnie Camo pattern (mimicking the NXT Arnie shoes) inspired by the colours from his iconic Umbrella logo.
Designed with all the necessary on-course features of a tour staff bag, including heavy-duty zippers, durable PU material and a single strap for easy carrying, but in a much lighter package – 60 per cent lighter.
Beyond the 2020 API tournament gear, Puma Golf will also be hosting a “trunk show” onsite during the week, showcasing key pieces from its first, co-branded Puma x Arnold Palmer collection of apparel, footwear and accessories designed to honour Mr. Palmer’s legacy for years to come.
Attendees at the tournament will be able to pre-order the gear ahead of the official launch in June 2020. Announced last year during the 2019 API, the Puma x Arnold Palmer collection was designed to be a modern take on the classic styles Mr. Palmer wore during his career, with added details that tell the story of “A Life Well Played.”
The Puma product and design teams visited both Latrobe and Bay Hill to gather inspiration for the collection, listening to stories from Palmer’s family, friends and business associates. This collection delivers elevated polos, layering pieces, pants, shorts, accessories and footwear. Keep an eye out for more details in Q2 of this year.
