United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. FINDINGS.

     The Congress finds the following:
            (1) Arnold Palmer is a world famous golf professional, a 
        highly-successful business executive, a prominent advertising 
        spokesman, a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, and a 
        man with a common touch that has made him one of the most 
        popular and accessible public figures in history.
            (2) Arnold Palmer amassed 92 championships in professional 
        competition of national or international stature by the end of 
        1993, 61 of which came on the Professional Golf Association 
        Tour.
            (3) Arnold Palmer's magnetic personality and unfailing 
        sense of kindness and thoughtfulness have endeared him to 
        millions throughout the world.
            (4) Arnold Palmer has been the recipient of countless 
        honors including virtually every national award in golf and 
        both the Hickok Athlete of the Year and Sports Illustrated's 
        Sportsman of the Year awards, and he was chosen Athlete of the 
        Decade for the 1960s in a national Associated Press poll.
            (5) Arnold Palmer has received numerous honors outside the 
        world of sports, including the Patriot Award of the 
        Congressional Medal of Honor Society and the Golden Plate award 
        of the American Academy of Achievement.
            (6) Arnold Palmer served his country for 3 years in the 
        United States States Coast Guard and was among those chosen to 
        address the Joint Session of Congress on the occasion of the 
        100th anniversary of the birth of President Dwight D. 
        Eisenhower.
            (7) Arnold Palmer served as Honorary National Chairman of 
        the March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation for 20 years and 
        played a major role in the fund-raising drive that led to the 
        creation of the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Women 
        in Orlando and the Latrobe Area Hospital Charitable Foundation 
        in his Western Pennsylvania hometown.
            (8) Arnold Palmer remains active in tournament golf, 
        although he retired from competition in the major championships 
        on April 14, 2002, when he played the last of his 48 Masters 
        Tournaments, where he was given an emotional standing ovation 
        as he finished the 18th hole.
