Rickie Fowler and Puma team up with Duvin again on a retro golf line perfect for summer
Rickie Fowler and his apparel sponsor Puma are no stranger to bold collaborations. Fowler has worked with friend and business partner Kygo on three collaborative Puma Golf X Palm Tree Crew collections that have each been a hit. Not slowing down, Fowler now has teamed up with another close friend and trendy brand on a five-piece golf apparel and accessory collection that’s equal parts retro, nautical and stylish. Here’s a look at the Duvin X Puma Golf capsule, available now.

Fowler grew up playing golf with Duvin co-founder Shaun O’Meara, son of two-time major winner and World Golf Hall of Fame member Mark O’Meara. The friendship led the two to collaborate last summer on a small capsule inspired by beachy Florida vibes. Duvin is an apparel company focused on beachwear with heavy influences from 80’s surf culture and retro Florida beach fashion—a theme that shines through heavily in both the initial Puma X Duvin collaboration and the newly released line.
“Getting to work with Rickie and the PUMA team is always super exciting for us,” says Austin Duvall, Creative Director of Duvin. “It’s incredibly rewarding to get the opportunity to take our inspiration from leisure apparel and apply to it PUMA’s world-class manufacturing and expertise in crafting the ultimate performance products for golf.”
The reversible bucket hat and colorful golf shoes are likely to be the most popular pieces from the line—and sell out first. But don't sleep on the water-repellent windbreaker or vented golf shorts that are primarily monochromatic with pops of color throughout the designs. Blending the theme of summery colors on simple backgrounds, the sailing polo is made in part with recycled polyester and a touch of elastane to add stretch with UPF 40 sun protection and an ultra-lightweight feel. It's a stylish-yet versatile summer golf collection that'll easily transition into fall golf 'fits.
