In January, PUMA announced a multi-year partnership with the celebrated PGA Tour professional that has him wearing pieces from the brand’s Volition America Collection, a patriotic ensemble of products, to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Volition America supports the families of our military heroes through the Folds of Honor Foundation.

Additionally, throughout the week, Woodland relied on PUMA’s celebrated IGNITE PWRADAPT Leather footwear, with Tour proven style, comfort and stability. PUMA’s PWRADAPT shoes offer sophisticated style thanks to a premium leather upper, an excellent fit with a mesh hybrid bootie lining, and extreme comfort from IGNITE foam. Revolutionary and proprietary PWRADAPT Technology provided extreme traction, support and comfort as Woodland negotiated Pebble Beach’s rigorous and beautiful terrain.

PUMA's talented footwear team created a custom pair of his shoes in a patriotic red, white and blue colorway, featuring the Stars & Stripes of the United States flag, that Woodland wore as he captured his first major championship win on Sunday.

The Volition America Golf Collection, which first launched in 2017, marries the best of PUMA Golf’s cutting-edge apparel and footwear technologies and styles with Volition America’s focus on patriotism and all things, red, white and blue. The collection supports Folds of Honor, helping to fund educational scholarships for families of fallen and critically-injured military men and women.
