Arnold Daniel Palmer is considered one of the best American golfers in history.  He was extremely well-liked by fans and helped increase the popularity of golf overall.
 
Palmer learned golf from his father at an early age and later attended Wake Forest College on a golf scholarship.  In 1954, he won the US Amateur Championship in Detroit, later calling it "the turning point in my life...  It gave me confidence I could compete at the highest level of the game."  Shortly after that, Palmer decided to become a professional golfer.
 
Over the next 60 years of his career, Palmer won 62 PGA Tour titles, seven major titles (four Masters Tournament, one US Open, and two Open Championship titles), and the PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award.  Palmer was also one of the 13 original inductees into the World Golf Hall of Fame.  He was crowned Sports Illustrated's "Sportsman of the Year" in 1960, and seven years later, became the first man to earn one million dollars on the PGA Tour.
 
In 2004, Arnold Palmer received the Presidential Medal of Freedom – the first golfer to do so.  Five years later, he became the second golfer in history to be awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.  These were all to honor a man who took the sport once played only by the rich and transformed it into a game for everyone.
