Arnold Palmer passed away on Sunday afternoon. Praised from every corner of the golfing world, “The King” will be remembered for far more than just his golf.

“Arnie’s Army” originated during the 1958 Masters, when Augusta National let military personnel from a nearby army base onto the grounds for free and they were recruited as volunteers to man the scoreboards throughout the course. (Source/Augusta National).
5. Arnie the businessman
In the early 90’s Palmer played a key part in securing enough capital to launch the Golf Channel, which credited him as a co-founder of the network. He has also designed over 200 golf courses.
