Farewell to the King

It is difficult to think of anyone, not just in golf or in sports in general, but ‘anyone’ who was as admired, respected and beloved as much as Arnold Palmer. I remember my dad watching ‘Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf’ in the 60’s,  Arnie was his guy and he would whoop and hurray with every shot.  But then Arnie had that effect on everyone. I kinda thought he looked like Superman charging around out there people swarming around him and cheering!  As the years wore on and his golf slowly diminished  he didn’t disappear like so many sports hero’s, if anything,  he seemed to gain in popularity! He just had that enigmatic appeal that drew people to him and it lasted literally his entire life … see ya Arnie you will be missed.
