|OCT ||1988 -- Palmer is asked why, despite being involved in some heated rivalries, he's never publicly disparaged an opponent. He says it was how he was raised: "My Pap taught me when I was a boy to be a gentleman. It's a lesson I've never forgotten. I wanted to win as much as anybody who ever played this game, but I never wanted to win so badly that I would hurt somebody else. I never saw how it would help my game to be mean to another player. When I first started doing this, I had a young wife and we were about $4,000 in the hole. And even then I was never nasty to anybody. I've never seen how that can help anybody's game."|
