Golf legend Arnold Palmer died Sunday, family told Golfweek.

He was 87 years old. His health had been decreasing since late 2015.

“The King” was one of the greatest golfers, having won seven majors. He also helped popularize the sport to the public.

Palmer was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974 and won the PGA Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998.

He has remained in the sport after retiring as a player through his Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Even non-golf fans may know and love him for his “Arnold Palmer” drink, a mix of iced tea and lemonade.
