The World Golf Hall of Fame celebrates golf and honors the legacies of those who have made it great. The Hall of Fame opened in Pinehurst, NC, in 1974 where a total of 71 members were inducted before moving to its current location in St. Augustine, FL, in 1998. The World Golf Hall of Fame currently recognizes 160 members.
The U.S. Postal Service will host a special stamp dedication honoring legendary Hall of Famer Arnold Palmer (1929–2016), who rose from humble beginnings to become one of the world’s greatest champions. With drive and charisma, he helped transform a game once seen as a pastime for the elite into a sport enjoyed by the masses.
During a nearly decade-long period beginning in 1958, Palmer led the PGA Tour in yearly money winnings four times; won the Vardon Trophy, awarded to the player with the lowest scoring average, four times; and twice earned PGA Player of the Year honors. In 1964, he won his seventh and final Major Championship at The Masters. He competed on six winning U.S. Ryder Cup teams and captained the team twice, first as a player in 1963, then in 1975. Overall, Palmer won 62 PGA TOUR events, the fifth-most of all time, and 92 tournaments worldwide.
The Arnold Palmer stamp is being issued as a Forever stamp, which will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail 1-ounce price.
