Today is Arnold Palmer’s 82nd birthday.

To date I still haven’t met Mr. Palmer, but I hope to some day.  I have had the pleasure of watching him play on the then Senior Tour in a threesome with Jack Nicklaus and Lee Trevino.  That was a blast.  Arnie also drove by me on hole #12 at Augusta in a golf cart at the Tuesday practice round of the Masters in 2010.  That’s the closest I’ve gotten so far!

Happy 82nd to the King.
