Golf legend Arnold Palmer dies at 87
Golf superstar Arnold Palmer died Sunday, the U.S. Golf Association said. The legendary player and TV star was 87.

Palmer, from Latrobe, Pa., was known for his go-for-broke style that led to four Masters titles, two British Open titles and a U.S. Open title.

"We loved him with a mythic American joy," Palmer biographer James Dodson told Golf Week. "He represented everything that is great about golf. The friendship, the fellowship, the laughter, the impossibility of golf, the sudden rapture moment that brings you back, a moment that you never forget, that's Arnold Palmer in spades. He's the defining figure in golf."


LOOSE LIPS:
"You couldn't pay me to go back five or 10 years ago. Having gone through trials and tribulations has brought me to this place today. I feel so much lighter. And I'm growing into the best version of myself."
--Mandy Moore, reflecting on her life and divorce from husband Ryan Adams, in this week's issue of PEOPLE
