Between killer clowns, Donald Trump, terrorism, Colin Kaepernick and all of the other shit that’s happened in the world this year, the death of Arnold Palmer seems as though it has unfortunately flown under the radar. We’re talking about the Michael Jordan of golf. Sorry, correction: Michael Jordan was the Arnold Palmer of basketball.
Even though it’s already been nine days since Palmer’s passing, his memorial service in Latrobe, Pennsylvania wasn’t held until this morning. And it was a predictably PACKED house. Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson, Ernie Els, Nick Faldo, Tom Watson, Lee Trevino, and more were all in attendance to give The King one final send off.
During the two-hour-plus memorial service, the highlight was the eulogy given by Jack Nicklaus, Palmer’s friend and competitor.
Watch it below. It’s well worth your 15 minutes.
