We learned that Arnold Palmer passed away over the weekend.   He was one of the greatest sports figures ever:

Palmer began his professional career in 1954.  
He quickly picked up his first PGA Tour win at the 1955 Canadian Open in his rookie season, and his first-round 64 remained the best opening round of his career.
He went on to win 62 titles on the PGA Tour, fifth-most all time, and 92 including international and senior victories. 
He was PGA Player of the Year twice (1960 and ’62) and the tour’s leading money winner four times, with total tournament earnings of almost $7 million.

He made golf popular all over.  A really nice man as well!

RIP Mr Palmer!
