Palmer
"Arnold Palmer is a legend both on and off the golf course and we are deeply appreciative that Congress has recognized his achievements and his character in giving this prestigious award. His impact on players, tournaments, fans, sponsors, sports television, volunteers and perhaps most importantly on communities where he worked, lived and competed cannot be measured but is deeply felt and will continue have a tremendous impact for generations."
