“Hello” Arnold Palmer Born 10 September 1929
Arnold Daniel Palmer (born September 10, 1929) is an American professional golfer, nicknamed “The King“, who is generally regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of men’s professional golf. He has won numerous events on both the PGA Tour and Champions Tour, dating back to 1955. Palmer’s humble background and his popularity helped to change the general perception that golf was an elite, upper-class past time. He is considered one of “The Big Three” in golf, along with Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, who are widely credited with bringing golf to the masses and commercialising the sport around the world.
Palmer won the PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998, and in 1974 was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
