If Rickie Fowler raised eyebrows with his new high top Puma boots last Tuesday, he certainly set tongues wagging by playing the first round of the Tournament Of Champions wearing a flame retardant Formula One racing suit and helmet.

Rickie Fowler Sporting His Full 2016 Look At The TOC.
Speaking after shooting a first round of four under par, Fowler said "I loved the way the suit worked. It allows me to go a little bit faster in the corners, plus there's a rubber bladder sewn into the crotch so if need to pee I can just go. It feels warm along my leg; it's fun.  The helmet is great too. The weight of it stops my head lifting off the shot and of course I save on having to apply sunblock.  Plus there's a built in earpiece that allows me to get telemetry from the pit lane.  And I haven't even mentioned yet that the whole outfit is flame retardant to 10,000 degrees which is handy in case there's combustion around me."

More as it emerges.
