Arnold Palmer: A Life Well Played

1929 – 2016

On September 25, 2016, the golfing world lost one of the greats of the game. This wall was created to honor the legendary life and career of World Golf Hall of Fame Member Arnold Palmer and was unveiled at one of his most beloved events: The Ryder Cup.

As fans entered the gates of Hazeltine National Golf Club, they were asked to share their memories and what Mr. Palmer meant to them.

We continue to honor and celebrate his outstanding career and the impact his life has made on the world of golf and to greater society.

During his Hall of Fame career, beginning with his U.S. Amateur title in 1954, Arnold Palmer claimed 93 worldwide victories including 12 Major Championships on the PGA and Champions Tours.

Among his many awards and accolades, Mr. Palmer received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2004 and the Congressional Gold Medal in 2009 in honor of his contributions to American society.
