Best, personal Arnold Palmer story in honor of Arnie’s tournament? Flash back to the early years of the PGA Tour - mid sixties. My dad took me during the week to the Carling World Open in Grand Blanc, Michigan. Back then, there were very few folks in the gallery during the work week. I remember lying down, right behind a tee off area and looking at Arnie tee off, praying that I didn’t sneeze — I was that close.
Then, my Dad went to follow a guy named Jack and I followed Arnold. On one hole, after Arnie teed off — I was walking by myself about 100 yards from the tee — no one within 50 yards of me, either way. Arnie walked extremely fast and soon he was walking right to the side of me. Then, he looks over, right in my eyes, and gives me that big Arnie nod. I melted right there in the fairway where I stood.
Arnold Palmer always had a connection to his fans. That’s what made him one of the most loved players in the history of golf. He always had time for you.
