Arnold Palmer was never shy when it came to the way he lived his life.

From his unmatched, unorthodox style of play to the energy he channeled through his fans, every element of Mr. Palmer’s life was well played.

But living Life Well Played goes well beyond the game of golf.

It’s about having the courage to do the right thing, taking the high road and lifting up those less fortunate.

It’s about teaching children that how you play is just as important as the outcome with the First Tee Organization.

It’s about leading by example. And whether that means staying late at the course to sign a couple more autographs or coming in early to the hospital to cheer up the kids, Mr. Palmer was proof that you have to give it your all, no matter what.

That’s #LifeWellPlayed.

Join us and celebrate the life of Arnold Palmer by sharing what life well played means to you on your social channels using #LifeWellPlayed.

    Arnie’s Army Marches On

    It all began in the 1960’s when Arnold Palmer’s go for broke style of golf bolstered a legion of fans, coined by the press as Arnie’s Army, who lovingly bestowed the title of “The King” upon him not only because of his prowess on the course, but more importantly because of his unfailing sense of kindness and thoughtfulness. 

    Arnie’s Army is marching toward a better tomorrow by investing in the well-being and development of children & youth, supporting health & wellness initiatives and strengthening communities and the environment.
