Arnie: The Life of Arnold Palmer by Tom Callahan will be available April 4, 2017. “In its pages are the details of the “King’s” fondness for the ladies,” Mike Francesa said on WFAN Sports Radio 66 in New York City today.
Veteran sportswriter Tom Callahan shines a spotlight on one of the greatest golfers ever to play the game, Arnold Palmer.
The winner of more than ninety championships, including four Masters Tournaments, Arnold Palmer was a legend in twentieth century sports: a supremely gifted competitor beloved for his powerful hitting, his nerve on the greens, and his great rapport with fans. Perhaps above all others, Palmer was the reason golf’s popularity exploded, as the King of the links helped define golf’s golden age along with Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player.
In addition to his talent on the golf course, Palmer was a brilliant entrepreneur off it, and one of the first sportsmen to create his own successful marketing brand.
Arnie will weigh on the hearts of many, this is the first time the PGA Tour will stop in Orlando without Palmer.
