Golf Legend, Arnold Palmer, dead at 87

On Sunday night, legendary golfer and philanthropist, Arnold Palmer, died in Pittsburgh at the age of 87. He is considered one of the best golfers to have ever lived. My father is a big fan of golf, so I know that he is grieving this loss right now.

Born in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, on September 10, 1929, his father worked as a groundskeeper for a golf course and introduced Palmer to the game when he was only three years old.

Arnold Palmer had a decades long career playing professionally that included 62 PGA wins, and seven major titles including four Masters victories. People in the world of golf even called him “The King” because of how good he was. He officially retired in 2006.

And of course, it’s worth mentioning that this is the man who Arizona Tea Co. met with in 2002 to create the “Arnold Palmer” tea, iced tea mixed with lemonade, that we all love so much.

Palmer leaves behind his wife, Kathleen, who he married in 2005, and his two daughters. He will be greatly missed.
