My connections with Arnold Palmer all began in 1963.

In July of 1963, a friend and I drove from Omaha to Hillcrest CC in Lincoln, Nebraska to watch an exhibition golf match involving Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and the head Pro. I knew from that moment that I would be a great fan of Arnie. 53 years later, on February 15th, after playing a round of golf at Arnie's home course in Orlando, I had the opportunity to meet the 'King', talk with him for about 15 minutes and have a picture taken with him. Then 8 months later, he was gone to be with golfing gods in heaven. I was thrilled to have been able to personally meet him. He is my all time favorite golfer and athlete. RIP Arnie and than for all of the awesome memories.
