On Tuesday, the United States Postal Service announced it will recognize Palmer with a nationwide stamp as a part of its 2020 stamp program.

“To have my father celebrated in this way is a true honor,” said Amy Saunders, Palmer’s daughter and chairwoman of the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation via a press release.

“It’s something I think he would be proud of as both an individual and as an American, and it’s a wonderful way to preserve his legacy.”

The stamp, designed by Antonio Alcala, will have a picture of Palmer from the 1964 U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club with his name in the top left corner and the words “Forever” and “USA” on the bottom left.
