The sports world is in mourning over the loss of Arnold Palmer Sunday night to heart complications. The legend, who was 87, transformed not only the world of professional golf, but pro sports and modern sports marketing.
Our friends at SI are paying to tribute to ‘The King’ by putting him on the national cover of this week’s issue of Sports Illustrated. The cover includes the classic Sports Illustrated photo of Palmer during his prime playing career along with the appropriate banner “King of Kings.” This marks the 12th time Palmer has been featured on the cover of SI. The new issue will be available at newstands as early as Wednesday.
You can see the full cover below.
