Arnold Palmer’s Signature Umbrella To Be Prominently Featured This Week

When going to Bay Hill, the club owned by Arnold Palmer, one can expect to see Palmer’s signature umbrella all over. With this year’s edition being the first since the passing of The King, you can expect to see it even more predominately, including on many of the Tour pros competing.

Billy Horschel and Danny Willett are just a few of the Tour pros that have made it known via social media that they will be sporting the umbrella in some fashion this week. Horschel tweeted out pictures of both his polos and golf balls for the week, both featuring Arnie’s umbrella:

Additionally, Willett sent out this tweet of his golf bag on the driving range at Bay Hill. You might notice something new right in the middle:

That’s just one of the many tributes that are lined up for Palmer this week. In addition to the unveiling of the statue, which we profiled here, there will also be a special press conference and opening ceremony Wednesday morning featuring Palmer’s grandson Sam Saunders and PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan. Palmer’s iconic golf cart will also be set up throughout the week overlooking the 16th tee, a spot Arnie used to enjoy setting up shop during the tournament.
