With seven majors and 90 tournament wins to his name, he was no slouch on the course while also having an effect off it – with having a cocktail named after him just one of his other accomplishments.

Palmer was often able to draw new viewers to golf with his ‘everyman’ style and ability to digest the sport in to easy soundbites.
