CARLSBAD, Calif. (March 8, 2021) – Rickie Fowler, one of PUMA’s most celebrated brand ambassadors, has joined forces with PUMA Golf and world-renowned DJ, songwriter and record producer, KYGO, to bring to life a new, exciting collection – PUMA Golf x Palm Tree Crew.
The Palm Tree Crew (PTC) is a lifestyle brand, founded by KYGO and his manager Myles Shear, that encapsulates tropical vibes and is represented by its iconic golden palm tree logo. The PUMA Golf x PTC collection stemmed from a long-standing friendship between Fowler, also a long-time Crew member, and KYGO, himself an avid golfer, partnering to deliver official Palm Tree Crew gear to the golf course.
"Golf is one of my favorite hobbies when I'm not touring or making music. Rickie and I had wanted to team up with our brands and make something special that not only we could enjoy but our fans and supporters as well. I couldn’t be happier with how the collection turned out and can't wait to see Rickie out there on the course decked out in Palm Tree Crew x Puma gear!" – KYGO
“I’ve known KYGO and Myles and have been part of the Palm Tree Crew for a while now. PUMA Golf and I have been together since the beginning. I worked with both teams to help create a cool collection that will make golfers feel like they’re a part of the Crew. This collab brings two of my worlds together. I couldn’t be happier – we nailed it,” said Fowler.
Inspired by the jet-setting lifestyle of the DJs, athletes and musicians that represent the Palm Tree Crew, this collection represents those who continuously chase their bold dreams with a quiet confidence and dedication to their craft. Although not everyone will play in a Major or DJ for thousands, the PUMA Golf x PTC gear, designed for wear on and off the course, will give you the swagger and spirit to chase your dreams, whatever they are.
PUMA designers created the collection to capture KYGO’s laid-back vibes, blending golf and lifestyle silhouettes, fabricated to perform on the course yet deliver comfort and style for everyday life. A deep navy blazer colorway and bright gold hits elevate the collection, with each piece featuring the iconic PUMA cat and Palm Tree Crew logo.
"We could not be more excited to come out of the gate with Palm Tree Crew through this collaboration with PUMA Golf. Palm Tree Crew is proud to work with Rickie, alongside PUMA, to bring our tropical vibes to the golf course. Rickie has always been a fashion icon in the golf world, and we are excited to work with him to bring our vision to life. This is just the beginning of a great and long-standing partnership,” said Shear.
“The blend of PUMA’s sport style heritage and history in golf combined with The Palm Tree Crew’s laidback lifestyle vibes was the perfect inspiration for this partnership,” said Grant Knudson, Head of Product Creation, PUMA Golf. “When designing this collection, we looked beyond the expected to create something fresh and modern with a more fashion-forward feel. The PUMA Golf x PTC collection perfectly fuses sport and lifestyle fashion and can be dressed up or down to fit seamlessly into any wardrobe.”
In addition to the apparel, footwear and accessories, the collaboration will also include a one-of-a-kind COBRA RADSPEED Palm Tree Crew Driver. Featuring all the key technologies incorporated in COBRA’s RADSPEED drivers, this Limited-Edition version comes in a striking navy and gold colorway with the Palm Tree logo on the toe. The driver also includes a custom COBRA x PTC headcover, an ultra-premium Fujikura Speeder VII 661, for X & S flex, and the 569 for R flex and a custom black and gold COBRA Lamkin Crossline CONNECT grip.
