Throwback: Moving Tribute To The King At The Ryder Cup

It’s essentially Arnold Palmer week, and so the PGA of America posted this cool remembrance of the King to their Instagram account.

It’s a quick look at one of the (many) moving tributes to Palmer during last year’s Ryder Cup matches at Hazeltine.

NBC’s Mike Tirico, does the voice-over – describing the U.S. team’s decision to place Arnold Palmer’s Ryder Cup golf bag from 1975, as a reminder (and good luck charm): “There’s a reason that bag was there. The message I think was sent. And the message was sent by the Americans this morning,” and the b-roll transitions to the crowd chanting, “A-r-n-o-l-d P-a-l-m-e-r (clap clap – clap clap clap) A-r-n-o-l-d P-a-l-m-e-r (clap clap – clap clap clap)…”.

It was bone-chilling and epic.

R.I.P., Mr Palmer. You’ll always be the KING!
