Who didn’t love Arnold Palmer? The guy was just a genuine human being that loved the great game of golf. Palmer died in September at age 87 from heart complications, leaving this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard at Bay Hill Club without its host for the first time in its 39-year history. It’s been an emotional, heart-tugging time for the Palmer family as well as for the King’s army of fans and supporters.
The tributes have been going on for several weeks in honor of the late legend. With the Arnold Palmer Invitational, this year is special because it honors the first year the namesake has not been present. It has become a celebration of the Kings life and the support couldn’t be stronger.
