Golf Legend Arnold Palmer died Sunday in Pittsburgh at the age of 87. Alastair Johnson, chief executive of Arnold Palmer Enterprises, confirmed the businessman, philanthropist, and trailblazing golfer died during the afternoon following complications from heart problems, several days after being admitted to the hospital for a cardiovascular procedure. “We are deeply saddened by the death of Arnold Palmer, golf’s greatest ambassador,” the U.S. Golf Association said in a statement. “Arnold Palmer will always be a champion, in every sense of the word. He inspired generations to love golf by sharing his competitive spirit, displaying sportsmanship, caring for golfers and golf fans, and serving as a lifelong ambassador for the sport.” Palmer’s accessible public persona and dominance of the sport during the early days of the television era led to him being known as the “King of Golf.”
