As the first Arnold Palmer Invitational since The King’s passing approaches, there have been many tributes paid to honor the legacy of one of golf’s greatest icons.
The latest tribute has come in the form of an incredible mural that has been painted at the Valspar Championship over the past several days by St. Petersburg-based artist Sebastian Coolidge.

Sebastian Coolidge doesn’t know much about golf, but he for sure knows who Arnold Palmer is.
“I’m even a fan of the half-sweet tea, half-lemonade,” Coolidge said, referencing the iconic drink named after the late golf legend.
Coolidge is from St. Petersburg, Fla., about 30 minutes south of Palm Harbor, which is the location for this week’s Valspar Championship at Innisbrook. But what is he doing at a golf tournament?
Painting. Specifically, he’s painting a mural of Arnold Palmer, which he said is supposed to be delivered to Orlando, Fla. Coolidge, whose art can be seen by clicking here, started the mural at 9 a.m. near the first tee at Innisbrook’s Copperhead Course.
And what paint is Coolidge using? “Valspar, of course,” Coolidge said.
