A singular portrait of a true legend that no golf fan will want to miss

About 40 miles east of Pittsburgh is the small town of Latrobe, Pennsylvania, the place Arnold Palmer called home. The world knew Palmer as The King. But the Palmer Latrobe knew was funnier, goofier, saltier, and less grandiose than the one justifiably loved around the globe. In Arnold Palmer: Homespun Stories of the King, journalist, Latrobe resident, and accidental Palmer insider Chris Rodell draws upon over 100 interviews with the golf great conducted over 20 years, providing an intimate, charming, and at times irreverent glimpse at the icon outside the spotlight.


"This book is a wonderful testament to Arnold Palmer. He was the every day man who had time for everyone. Perhaps better than any story that's ever been written about the King, Chris Rodell proves that Arnie was truly one of the all time great human beings." —Jim Nantz
