Arnold Palmer’s nickname is “The King,” and for a good reason.  

My introduction to the great Arnold Palmer was an LP record my father gave me for my 16th birthday by Arnie and Chris Schenkel.  I was mesmerized by this great man!  He inspired me to want to be a professional golfer!

He ruled the PGA Tour in the late ’50s and early ’60s and was golf’s most popular player.  Arnie’s Army was created, and swarms of people followed him around loyally on his quest for victories.  With Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, they formed “The Big 3” and appeared on TV shows, had endorsement contracts, and made a good living.  But both Jack and Gary agree that none of this would have happened without Arnold’s charisma.  Arnie opened the door for all future professional golfers to make a great living out of a game they love to play.
