The sports world is grieving today, as one of the most respected Professional Golfers, on and off the Links passed away Sunday.
 
The King of Golf,  Arnold Palmer, passed away Sunday at the age of 87. 
 
Palmer was one of a kind on the course winning 62 titles while on the PGA Tour. 
 
Among those victories were four at The Masters, 2 at the British Open and one at the U.S. Open, earning himself a spot in the World Golf Hall of Fame back in 1974.
 
Palmers legacy goes beyond the low scores and delicious drinks.  It extends to the babies and mothers whose lives were saved at the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Women in Orlando and to the 3 million dollars raised for prostate cancer research thanks to Arnie's Army.
 
Rest in peace Arnold, you will never be forgotten.
