We lost The King .. Arnold Palmer passes away at 87

 

Arnold Palmer, the King of golf, passes away Sunday at the age of 87.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette report Palmer died at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, where he had been since Thursday undergoing heart tests. His longtime assistant Doc Giffin said the golfer was hospitalized in preparation for heart surgery on Monday.

While we all knew this day would come, but still has caused the sports world to stop and think of Arnie.

Grow the game we say? Arnold Palmer made the game….

Often forgotten when Arnold is mentioned is what he did outside the game that really made him such a great man.

He was a giver, supporter, and had many children’s hospitals named after him, along with his late wife Winnie Palmer.

Without Arnie, the game would be no where near where it is today.

He will always be THE KING in our hearts.

Rest in peace Arnie, we will miss you!

“There’s no king in golf. Certainly not me. And I’ve taken more from this game than I’ve given.” —Arnold Palmer
