America lost a great man yesterday

Recommended Posts

Arnold Palmer passed yesterday at the age of 87. Not only was he great golfer, competitor & statesman but his philanthropy set the example for all of golf as well as the rest of us. Golf will never be the same without him. RIP Arnie.

He was always a Class Act, and I love his iced tea! :)

It is said that he brought golf to the masses.  But I think it is the opposite.  He brought the masses to golf. 

The real beauty is that he did not set that as a goal.  It was simply who Arnie was.

i had the opportunity to meet him a few years back, i believe it was 2010, and he was a genuinely nice guy.  his commercial spot for ESPN sportcenter with the guys in the cafeteria is my favorite one of those bits, hands down!

There is also video of him (outside the ESPN offices) chipping a golf ball into a glass of water.  Probably at the same time he made the commercial for ESPN.

I believe that although there are golfers with better records, Arnold Palmer is the most influential golfer in history.
