Golfing Great Arnold Palmer

Passes Away at Age 87

Arnold Palmer was a true legend of the game of golf.  He was an inspiration to many golfers throughout the world and he will be missed by all of us who love the game.

A true ambassador of the sport, Arnie left a lasting impression on everyone from PGA professionals to the average golfer throughout the world. From young to old, he has touched us all, for which we are grateful.

Throughout his career, he had 4 Green Jackets, 1 U.S. Open title, 2 Open Championships, 6 Ryder Cup teams and 62 PGA Tour wins.

As we say goodbye to a true competitor of the sport, here are some of my favorite Arnold Palmer quotes:

“Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated.”
 “What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I find in the flight of a good drive.”
“I have a tip that can take five strokes off anyone’s golf game: it’s called an eraser.”
 “Concentration comes out of a combination of confidence and hunger.”
“Success in golf depends less on strength of body than upon strength of mind and character.”
“Putting is like wisdom – partly a natural gift and partly the accumulation of experience.”
“I’ve always made a total effort, even when the odds seemed entirely against me. I never quit trying; I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.”
“The most rewarding things you do in life are often the ones that look like they cannot be done.”
“What do I mean by concentration? I mean focusing totally on the business at hand and commanding your body to do exactly what you want it to do.”
“You must play boldly to win.”

Thank you for all the memories.
