Arnold D Palmer (September 10, 1929 - September 25, 2016) was one of the greatest golfers to ever live. His career spanned more than six decades during which he won 62 PGA Tour Titles from 1955 to 1973 making him fifth on the Tour's all-time victory list. He won seven major titles and is widely considered along with Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player to be responsible for popularizing and commercializing golf around the world. He also helped break down the perception of golf being only an upper-class pastime with his humble beginnings.
