The winner of more than 90 championships, including four Masters Tournaments, Arnold Palmer was a legend in 20th-century sports: a supremely gifted competitor beloved for his powerful hitting, his nerve on the greens, and his great rapport with fans. Perhaps above all others, Palmer was the reason golf’s popularity exploded, as the King of the links helped define golf’s golden age along with Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. In addition to his talent on the golf course, Palmer was a brilliant entrepreneur off it, and one of the first sportsmen to create his own successful marketing brand. But beyond his business acumen, Palmer was always a larger-than-life character, and ARNIE recounts a host of unforgettable anecdotes from a long life in the spotlight.
