Arnold Palmer's About

[]

Arnold Palmer turned the status of the game of golf from being a mere game to a compelling sports activity. Fondly nicknamed The King, he was associated with the tremendous golf boom that the sporting activity witnessed in the latter half of the twentieth century that none ever anticipated. One of the greatest players in the history of men's professional golf, he, with his charismatic looks, not just made the game popular but successfully broke the jinx of golf as being the pastime of the elite and upper class only. He widened the accessibility of the game to the middle and working class, thus establishing a new found reputation to golf. A trailblazer of the golfing world, he, in his lifetime won 92 tournaments and became the highest earner of the sport. What's more, even after ceasing to win tournaments, he remained as one of the highest earners in golf due to his appeal to sponsors and the public. It was due to his sheer sportsmanship and excellence at playing the games that he became the first golfer ever to be bestowed with the prestigious Presidential Medal of Honor. Even after retirement, Palmer contributed to the sports in a big way by turning into an acute businessman and golf course designer.
