Happy 83rd Birthday to The King
By Stephanie Wei under General

Palmer shakes hands with Nicklaus

Just wanted to wish a happy birthday to Arnold Palmer. Thanks for all you’ve done for the game — and continue to do.

Back in March for the Arnold Palmer Invitational, I asked PGA Tour pros for anecdotes on the first time they shook Mr. Palmer’s hand. I just dug it up in the archives and re-read it — seems like a fitting tribute. Until earlier this year at Bay Hill, I had yet to shake his hand and made a point to check that off my bucket list. Mission accomplished.

Let’s raise our glasses and toast The King on his 83rd birthday.
