One of the greatest golfers of all time, Arnold Palmer passed away in hospital on Sunday 25th September 2016. He suffered from heart complications and at the age of 87 passed away peacefully in Pittsburgh USA.
We remember some of his great accomplishments:
4 Green Jackets
1 U.S. Open title
2 Open Championships
6 Ryder Cup teams
62 PGA Tour wins
Born in Latrobe, Pa., Palmer’s endearing personality and skill on the links earned him the nickname “The King,” during a career whose beginning coincided with the birth of television sports. Along the way, he became one of the wealthiest celebrity endorsers, a philanthropist, golf course designer and pilot.
RIP Arnold Palmer.
