R.I.P., Mr. Palmer...

He was an inspiration to all.

I read this yesterday and found it to be so appropriate.

Arnold Palmer, the Everyman 'King' of Golf, Dies at 87
that Arnold Palmer — the pants-hitching, chain-smoking son of a greenskeeper who helped transform golf from an elite country club pursuit in to a sport for the masses, winning every major honor the game has to offer along the way.

My dad was a huge golf fan and loved to play. I'm sure he could have been a pro. But he chose the path of a provider and family man. (I'm glad he did)

As a kid back in the 1970's, I can still picture my dad sitting in his favorite chair in front of the T.V. all Sunday afternoon watching golf. Watching Arnie.

Now maybe they can play a few rounds.
(But I'm putting all my money on dad.)
