The former golf pro, fondly nicknamed The King, was one of the greatest players the sport has ever seen, winning numerous events on both the PGA Tour and Champions Tour. Palmer became the first person to win the Masters four times, receiving the famed green jacket, and is fifth on the all-time wins list for the PGA Tour.
He is one of golf's most popular players, the first true superstar of the sport when the television age began, and along with Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player is considered part of "The Big Three."
“Today marks the passing of an era," said Alastair Johnston, Palmer's longtime agent. "Arnold Palmer’s influence, profile and achievements spread far beyond the game of golf. He was an iconic American who treated people with respect and warmth, and built a unique legacy through his ability to engage with fans.”
