Top 10 Arnold Palmer Quotes

As we celebrate the life of Arnold Palmer, we take a look back at some of his sage advice, humorous cracks and unique insight.

  2. “When people ask what’s driven me all these years, I always give the same answer. It’s you.”

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

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

  6. “I have a tip that will take five strokes off anyone’s golf game. It’s called an eraser.”

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

  9. “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.”

  10. “Trouble is bad to get into but fun to get out of. If you’re in trouble, eighty percent of the time there’s a way out. If you can see the ball, you can probably hit it; and if you can hit it, you can move it; and if you can move it, you might be able to knock it in the hole. At least it’s fun to try.”
