When it comes to golf and giving back, no individual gave more than Arnold Palmer. In 2011, Golf Digest created the Arnie Awards to celebrate the outstanding efforts of men and women who exemplified Palmer’s passion for giving back. In partnership with the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, Golf Digest presents recipients of our annual Arnie Awards—our highest honor—with a trophy-size version of a seven-foot Palmer bronze sculpture created by artist Zenos Frudakis.
In 2020, because of the seemingly endless world challenges and the countless people who confronted them, Golf Digest decided to celebrate all in golf doing extraordinary things. In their acts of kindness, charity and courage, we recognize the spirit of Arnold Palmer through our 2020 winners: Arnie’s Army.
