Question of the Day
Arnold Palmer was asked to describe his perfect day, and he frowned.
“I’m in a dilemma right now because I can’t hit the ball the way I want to,” Palmer said. “I can do things that will allow me to hit the ball where I want to hit it, but not as far. But straight isn’t the answer for me because I can’t hit it far enough. At 82, am I going to put the effort into it that I have to for me to enjoy playing? It’s very difficult.”
At the end of a long day that included a golf-course opening, Palmer made up his mind.
“I’ve decided I’m going to give it a shot this winter at Bay Hill, for my own satisfaction,” he said. “I’m going to work at it.”
Three weeks later, using a 5-iron from 163 yards on the Charger Course at Bay Hill, the King made his 20th career hole-in-hole and shot 79.
