This Saturday September 10th is Arnold Palmer's birthday. Mr.Palmer will be eighty-seven years old.
I remember being in the scoring tent at the U.S.Open in 1981 as he came off the 18th green on Friday having just made a putt to make the cut. I remember him saying to Tom Meeks in the scoring tent, "I used to make them to win, now I have to make them to make the cut."
In my opinion Palmer is an American icon. One of my favorite sports people ever.
Happy Birthday Mr.Palmer.
