Once upon a time, a young boy at the age of four swung his first set of golf clubs made by his father. 87 years later, he left us as being indisputably one of the most famous golfers in history. His popularity had been so exceptional that after Elvis Presley, he was also called ‘The King’.
Born in September 1929, Arnold Palmer was brought up in a working-class family in Western Pennsylvania. At the age of 11, he started caddying himself and beating his elders at the club where his father worked as both a golf professional and a course superintendent.
18 years later, he won his first Masters before winning it again in 1960, 1962 and 1964. In 1960, he won the prestigious U.S Open (Golf) in 2 strokes. Arnold Palmer was the 10th American golfer to win The British Open in 1961 and 1962. “Success in golf depends less on strength of body than upon strength of mind and character”, said ‘The King’
‘A real person with real strengths’, is how Arnie is described by his friends. He was known for his determination and self-confidence that made him a successful business executive and spokesman. He would always find time for everyone.
The tributes paid to him have been unprecedented in golf history.
