ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (September 26, 2016)“To us, Arnold was a World Golf Hall of Fame Member. But as news stories will reveal, he was so much more than a legendary golfer. He was a global hero and one of the greatest humanitarians who ever lived. It’s nearly impossible to start a conversation about the history of golf without mentioning Arnold’s name in the first few sentences. He captured the hearts and minds of so many through his unmistakable golf swing, picturesque smile and larger-than-life personality. Arnold Palmer will be greatly missed and his legacy will forever be celebrated at the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum.”

– Jack Peter, President, World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum
