Three weeks shy of his 85th birthday, the legendary Arnold Palmer underwent a pacemaker implant surgery on Monday to correct an abnormal heartbeat. The news was announced on his website and Facebook page:
Earlier this month, the seven-time major winner sat out the Greats of Golf Challenge in Minnesota due to a back injury that requires physical therapy.
Palmer is expected to be released from the hospital on Tuesday, and we wish him nothing but a speedy recovery.
