In April, Palmer’s health kept him from hitting a ceremonial tee shot at The Masters for the first time since 2007. He was not able to attend the U.S. Open at Oakmont near his home in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, and was struggling with mobility problems.
Tributes and remembrances poured in from golf professionals and fans alike following the news of Palmer’s passing.
Thanks Arnold for your friendship, counsel and a lot of laughs. Your philanthropy and humility are part of your legend.
