First golfer I ever followed. I remember Arnold, Chi Chi Rodriquez, and Rafe Botts were all playing in the Senior tour in the 80s. I loved watching them play. He proceeded both of them in death. Rest in peach great one.
Back in the 90s, I had the Arnold Palmer version of Links Golf for PC. You could opt to play against Arnie on a huge variety of courses (that you had to buy, of course). But Palmer did the voiceovers for himself, and so, in a virtual way, I felt like I had really played golf with him.
Of course, in real life, I never would, because that would have been an insult to him, but in VR world....!
Reportedly he was playing golf with Tiger Woods, who was bemoaning the fact that he was forced to live out his life in the public arena. Supposedly Mr. Palmer told him he could always recover his privacy. all he had to do was give up the money, get a real job, and play golf with his buddies on the weekend...
It is sad that another true sportsman has passed on.
