Marc Leishman Wins Arnold Palmer Invitational Wearing NexBelt | Winning Fashion

Why Your Next Belt May Be A NexBelt

With a 52-foot eagle putt on the 16th hole that would have made the late Arnold Palmer proud, Australia’s Marc Leishman took the lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday that led to a one-stroke victory.

Leishman fired rounds of 71, 66, 71 and 69 at Bay Hill to finish with a score of 277 (11 under par). Marc made the win possible by holing a 50-foot eagle putt on the 16th hole and then sank his par putt on the final hole to seal the victory. Marc was inspired to win a trophy for his two sons, Harvey and Ollie, and he thought of Harvey for an extra dose of confidence as he stood over his final putt.

This was Leishman’s second PGA TOUR win, and the first one that his wife Audrey and their two sons were on-hand to watch.

“It’s been a real dream and a real motivation to win a trophy for Harvey and Ollie, and the fact that we’re all here together is a dream come true,” said Audrey.

Marc’s victory earned him a paycheck for $1.56 Million and 500 FedEx Cup Points. He is currently ranked 11th on the FedEx Cup Points List and 32nd in the Official World Golf Rankings. This victory also earned Leishman an invitation to The Masters in two weeks.

Fowler’s Pays Tribute to Arnold Palmer With His Special-Edition Puma Shoes

A Perfect Tribute For The King of Golf

There have been many wonderful tributes to Arnold Palmer so far this week at Bay Hill. Many golfers are honoring Palmer with umbrella-themed gear, but Fowler plans to pay the King tribute in style.

Fowler partnered with Puma to create a pair of golf shoes which will feature, most notably, a high-grade infused graphic of several Palmer photos printed directly into the leather. The design is so unique, colorful, tasteful and overall – perfect. Who wouldn’t want to rock these?

He plans to wear the shoes at the 2017 Arnold Palmer Invitational, the first time the Orlando event has been played since Palmer passed away in September 2016.

Only two pairs of the shoes exist – one Rickie will wear during the invitational, and the other, personally autographed by Rickie, will be auctioned off for charity to benefit Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation.

Throughout the week Rickie will also sport the iconic umbrella logo on his hat and polo.

These unique high-top shoes feature Arnold Palmer’s iconic signature laser-engraved on the Velcro strap, designed by Dominic Chambrone, known in the apparel world as “The Shoe Surgeon”. You can see the umbrella logo behind the tongue of the left shoe, and on the right side, there’s a quote from Rickie on Arnie’s influence.

Here’s what it says: “Legends never die. You will live on forever Arnie. I will never forget the bear hug in front of the clubhouse at Augusta, watching you hit your final tee shot there, and to spending time with you in the locker room at Bay Hill. Thank you for being you and giving me the opportunity to do what I get to do everyday! I love you as did everyone! RIP The King.”
