Palmer would then go on to win 10 more times on the Senior PGA Tour. Five of those were Senior major championships.

It wasn't just his dominance in golf, that made him the legend that he would become. He had the rare mix of style, good looks, and charisma, that attracted legions of adoring fans. Palmer was the first golfer to attract his own special following known as "Arnie's Army" - thousands of die hard fans who surrounded every green to cheer him on.

The world of golf has lost a legend. He will be missed.
