Patron & Honorary Chairman

Patron & Honorary Chairman

It’s a great honor to have the support of our Patron Arnold Palmer and Honorary Chairman of the Advisory Board Annika Sörenstam.

Arnold and Annika are two of golf’s most prominent people and have decided to support our mission .
Here is a short summary of who they are.

Arnold Palmer

Arnold Palmer is generally regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of men’s golf. Nicknamed “The King”, he is one of golf’s most popular stars and its most important trailblazer, because he was the first superstar of the sport’s television age, which began in the 1950s. He is part of “The Big Three” in golf, along with Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, who are widely credited with popularizing and commercialising the sport around the world.

Annika Sörenstam

Annika Sörenstam is a retired Swedish professional golfer whose achievements rank her as one of the most successful female golfers in history.Before stepping away from competitive golf at the end of the 2008, Annika won 90 international tournaments as a professional, making her the female golfer with the most wins to her name. She has won 72 official LPGA tournaments including ten majors and 18 other tournaments internationally, and she tops the LPGA’s career money list with earnings of over $22 million—over $8 million ahead of her nearest rival.

We would also like to extend a loving thought to the late Severiano Ballesteros, our former Hon. Chairman of the Advisory Board. He was a great Ambassador to the game of golf and close friend of our Founder Sven Tumba.
