Arnold Palmer will go down in history as one of the greatest in sports and golf. Arnie, as his fans called him, passed on many wise words during his life, and here we share some of his best.
“There’s no king in golf. Certainly not me. And I’ve taken more from this game than I’ve given.”
“When people ask what’s driven me all these years, I always give the same answer. It’s you.”
“What other people may find in poetry, I find in the flight of a good drive.”
“Success in this game depends less on strength of body than strength of mind and character.”
“The most rewarding things in life are the ones that often look like the ones that can’t be done.
“I have a tip that can take five strokes off anyone’s golf game. It’s called an eraser.”
“The road to success is always under construction.”
“I never quit trying. I never felt I didn’t have a chance to win.”
“Hit it hard, go find it, and hit it hard again.”
“Swing your swing.”
“The more I practice, the luckier I get.”
“Always sign an autograph so the fans can read it, we owe them that much.”
Don’t hold your head down, look them in the eyes, acknowledge them.”
