RIP to the King, Mr. Palmer.

His contributions to golf and society will exist for a long, long time. Arnie put golf on the map, period. He was the dashing hero that made fans watch golf, which at the time was a niche sport, on TV. Arnie was cool, all the women loved him and all the men wanted to be like him.

Mr. Palmer was a kind, classy man who made everyone he met feel special. Like the post above, this one makes me cry. While we know death must come to all people, this one is a shock (even though we all knew he was in poor health).

We have seen the two most iconic athletes of my generation leave us in 2016, Ali and Arnie. That is tough.
