Honoring Arnold Palmer’s Legacy


The Arnold Palmer Invitational is underway at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando.

To honor Palmer’s legacy, as “golf’s greatest ambassador,” the PGA TOUR announced an hour-long special entitled “PGA TOUR 2018: Mr. Palmer’s Legacy presented by Mastercard”, which can be viewed on the TOUR website here.

“Considered to be golf's greatest ambassador, Arnold Palmer owns a legacy which to this day is felt by so many throughout the world. In this 60-minute NBC special, we explore Mr. Palmer's greatest attributes which led to his profound impact on the game, and how it's still seen through players and tournaments on the PGA TOUR.”

The Arnold Palmer Invitational also compiled a piece about the “Top 18 Moments” of the tournament, which includes Arnold’s '71 Florida Citrus Open victory and the name change of the tournament in his honor.  To read more about the history of Orlando's Signature Event, please see the full article here.

As we wrap up our post for today, we’d also like to wish a very happy belated birthday to our 2017 RSM Classic champion, Austin Cook! At the most recent RSM Classic, Austin closed with two birdies for a 3-under 67 and a four-shot victory. His special day was on Tues, March 13 – we hope you had a great time celebrating, Austin!

Check back next week for more on Team RSM, The RSM Classic (Nov. 12-18, 2018) and other golf-related news.
