In honor of “The King” and everything he has done as golf’s greatest ambassador, we’ve compiled a list of some of Arnold Palmer’s greatest quotes. The knowledge Palmer left us with is as relevant today as it was back then.

1. “Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated.”

2. “The most rewarding things you do in life are often the ones that look like they cannot be done.”

3. “What other people may find in poetry, I find in the flight of a good drive.”

4. “Success in this game depends less on strength of body than strength of mind and character.”

5.  “I’ve always made a total effort, even when the odds seemed entirely against me. I never quit trying; I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.”


6. “Concentration comes out of a combination of confidence and hunger.”

7. “Winning isn’t everything, but wanting it is.”

8. “The road to success is always under construction.”

9. “Should have’ and ‘did’ may be neighbors, but they don’t always get along.”

10. “Golf is a game of inches. The most important are the six inches between your ears.”
