Overview

He's got 61 PGA Tour victories to his credit, is a highly sought-after spokesperson, has authored several books and designed a few golf courses in his day, not to mention he pilots his own plane, but to millions of fans he's not Mr. Palmer, not even Arnold. He's simply Arnie-the world-famous guy next door. His achievements on the green may have made him a celebrated athlete, but it's his approachability and down-home humility that have secured his status as one of the most admired people in and out of sports. In this, his first illustrated, autobiographical book, he shares the adventures of his extraordinary life in the same accessible, entertaining voice that's already made him such a familiar figure.

Arnold Palmer: Memories, Stories, and Memorabilia from a Life On and Off the Course gives readers the opportunity to spend some time with Arnie and enjoy firsthand his fascinating anecdotes both personal and professional. These tales alone would be enough to entice any golf fan, but the book features not only rare photos from Arnie's private collection but also removable facsimiles of 12 collectibles from his archives: golf souvenirs, letters, and pictures, all displayed in glassine envelopes. The next best thing to a scrapbook handcrafted by the man himself, for fans of the legendary golfer it's the gift equivalent of a hole in one.

Author Bio: ARNOLD PALMER is commander-in-chief of "Arnie's Army," the world's largest noncombative force. Among his 61 PGA Tour victories, Palmer won the Masters four times, the U.S. Open once, and the British Open twice. A gifted athlete, Palmer is also an accomplished entrepreneur, a skilled aviator, a prominent advertising spokesperson, a talented golf course designer, and the author of four books about the game. He resides in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.

Editorial Reviews

It's been more than 30 years since Arnold Palmer enjoyed the last of his 61 PGA Tour victories, but apparently nobody told his fans. "Arnie's Army" remains mobilized, and Palmer continues to maintain his reputation as one of the world's most beloved athletes. This large-format book combines a fascinating autobiographical text and 100 color illustrations from the personal collection of the four-time Masters champion.
