Arnold Palmer“We have lost a great friend and giant in our sport with the passing of Arnold Palmer. There is no way to adequately express the immense sense of loss that we all feel with this news.

The fact that his popularity never waned more than a quarter century after his last competitive victory speaks volumes to the man, the icon and the legendary figure he was.
