Celebrating The King: Arnold Palmer’s 85th Birthday
Today, we pause and raise a glass of half lemonade, half iced tea to celebrate “The King” – Arnold Palmer himself. The 62-time PGA TOUR champion is 85 years young today. In honor of the milestone, Golf Channel will air an encore presentation of its critically-acclaimed documentary, Arnie, today, chronicling the life and legacy of Arnold Palmer.
The three-part television event will air in consecutive hours beginning at 3 p.m. ET and in primetime at 8 p.m. ET.
Narrated by actor Tom Selleck, Arnie showcases how the golfing legend revolutionized and transcended the game to become one of the most beloved figures in sports history. Arnie spans Palmer’s entire life to the present, from his early childhood through his amateur and professional golf careers, his various off-course enterprises and the legacy he continues to build. Throughout the presentation, golf’s iconic legends, family, business partners, colorful personalities and two U.S. Presidents recount the great stories that created the cultural phenomenon around the man.
