 All of us agree that Arnold Palmer had a fantastic career, no doubt about it.  But in a time where wins and money on the PGA mean the measure of a golfer’s greatness, Arnold Palmer had an even more amazing stat.  From 1974 to 2004, a span of 30 years, Arnold did not have a victory but still made more money in endorsements than any other golfer on the planet!  Why? Because everybody loved Arnold Palmer and would buy anything he put his name on.  From car dealerships (I bought my Cadillac from an Arnold Palmer dealership in 1997) to car and tractor oil, golf course design, etc.  Heck, he even had a drink named after him!  I don’t know of any person alive or dead with the charisma, charm, and aura that Arnold had.  Thank you so much, Brentley Romine, of Golfweek for these amazing career stats. Thanks for everything you have done for the game of golf, Arnie!  You will be sorely missed.
