In sports, there are a few guys nicknamed the “king.”

In NASCAR, it is Richard Petty. In basketball, there’s “King James,” as in Lebron James.

In golf, it’s Arnold Palmer.

Many believe Palmer brought the game of golf to the average man–before Arnie it was considered an “elitist” sport!

This past weekend, Wake Forest honored Palmer, who started the school’s great golf tradition.
