I met Arnie at Pacific Dunes in Bandon, Oregon, in 2003 or 2004.  I checked in the clubhouse, which at the time was a doublewide as the course was still under development.  The young man at the desk told me Arnold Palmer and his party were teeing off before me.  At first, I didn't beliieve him, then he showed me Arnie's name in the  appointment book.   Well, just then Arnie walks in and says hello to the young man.  All the time I was thinking how do I introduce myself to Arnie.  Being a Mason, and knowing that Arnie is a Mason, I will say,

can I shake the hand of a fellow Mason.  Arnie immediately shook my hand and ask what lodge I was a member of.  He ask if I was playing golf.  I said I was playing after his group.  I remarked that I was glad I was I playing behind his group.  He laughed, put his hand on my shoulder and said, go out there and have fun.  See

you in Heaven Arnie.   Roger Brown
