Palmer passed away in September, prompting a surge of interest in his memorabilia.

One of his Masters trophies realised a record $444,012 at Green Jacket Auctions in December last year.

Ryan Carey, co-owner of Green Jacket Auctions, explained to ESPN: “You could have gotten these shoes for $5,000 any time in the last 20 years.

“But Palmer’s death created a category of people scrambling to get pieces associated with him.”

We’ve got some great pieces of golfing memorabilia for sale.
