|OCT ||1994 -- Palmer asks visiting Bay Hill golfers Carl Bidwell and David Retallick if they'd like to join him for nine holes on the Charger course and play for $1 skins with carryovers. Bidwell, a 1993 Dayton, Ohio, City Men's Amateur Match Play champion went three under and took three dollars from Palmer, who insisted on paying. Bidwell told the Dayton Daily News that afterwards Palmer "sat down at the table next to us and talked for 15 minutes. He's just an ordinary average, super guy . . . and a fine gentleman."|
