On the day the U.S. decides whether its next president will be Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, golfing memorabilia once belonging to George H.W. Bush and John F. Kennedy will hit the auction block. Up for grabs is Bush’s Titleist Scotty Cameron “Big Sur” chest putter, a Callaway “Big Bertha” golf bag with a Cape Arundel Golf Club membership tag, engraved “President George H. W. Bush, Member” and several golf balls bearing his signature or presidential seal, according to CNN.

Another item, a personally-owned and used golf ball, belonged to JFK who would often practice on the White House lawn.

In the past golf ball sets belonging to the late president have sold for more than $30,000, though this particular JFK collection is expected to go for far less – like, $25,000 less.

“Winning isn’t everything, but wanting it is… It’s a funny thing, the more I practice the luckier I get!” – Arnold Palmer.

Legendary gold icon Arnold Palmer passed away at the age of 87 this week.

The son of a greenskeeper, who wasn’t allowed to golf on the course his dad cared for, Palmer will forever be known as The King of Golf. A true champion, Palmer’s lifelong career as golf’s greatest ambassador led to accolades and achievements such as receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal, a 1974 induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame and bragging rights as the first golfer to surpass $1 million in earnings.

In addition to his accomplishments as an athlete, Palmer was held in high regard by his fans – from Presidents to Average Joes – for his charitable work, bright business sense and his accessibility. He was a true gentleman, sportsmen, humanitarian and friend to Millionaire Gallery.

RIP, Mr. Palmer. You will be missed.

Muhammad Ali, boxing legend, dies at 74

“I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.”

Boxing great Muhammad Ali has died.

One of the most well-known and celebrated athletes in the 20th century, the three-time world heavyweight boxing champion was surrounded by his family during his final hours at a hospital in Scottsdale, AZ.

“The King of Trash Talk” was indomitable in the ring but took on techniques like bantering with his opponents outside of the ring with other boxing champions like Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier and George Foreman.

During his second fight with Litson, Ali landed what would be infamously dubbed “the perfect punch,” knocking Liston out in the first round. In the entirety of his career, Ali was defeated just 5 times having won an incredible 56 fights.

But boxing was just one of the many sides of Ali. Born Cassius Clay, he changed his name after joining the Nation of Islam in 1964. He also made headlines for political reasons, after refusing to fight in the Vietnam war, causing him to be exiled from boxing for three years. After his conviction was overturned in 1971, he went on to take back the World Heavyweight Champion title in 1974 and receive the Medal of Freedom in 2005.

Dedicated to his faith and humanitarian beliefs, Ali later also became an advocate for Parkinson’s awareness after being diagnosed with the disease in 1984. It was a battle he never stopped fighting.

RIP Muhammad Ali aka Cassius Clay, 1942-2016
