Arnold Palmer Announces New Memoir: ‘A Life Well Played’

June 7, 2016

Arnold Palmer announced he’s releasing a new memoir called “A Life Well Played: My Stories” in October 2016. The news comes just one day after Tiger Woods announced he’ll be a part of a new book project chronicling his 1997 Masters win.

The new book is billed as a follow-up to Palmer’s autobiography “A Golfer’s Life,” in which he wrote about his life in golf and on the PGA Tour. “A Life Well Played” promises to bring “new details and insights to some familiar stories” and share new ones. The write-up calls Palmer the “gold standard of how to conduct yourself,” a nod to Palmer’s unfailingly gentlemanly public behavior — it’s one reason golf fans (and current golf stars) think so highly of him. Fittingly, “A Life Well Played” will offer up guidance and advice from the man himself.

“Though I have written a number of books in the past, this one was particularly important to me because, as I delved into the process, I realized just how much I still wanted to say to my friends in golf and to fans of the game in general,” Palmer said in a statement. “Going through the exercise of getting it all down has been personally satisfying, but I couldn’t have done it without a dedicated group of individuals who truly believed in this project.”

You can pre-order the book on Amazon now. It will be in stores on Oct. 25.
