Palmer Attends 20th Anniversary Merrill Lynch Shootout Dinner with First Foursome
December 09, 2008
Arnold Palmer joins Raymond Floyd, Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman (referred to as the "First Foursome") December 11, 2008 to host the 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Merrill Lynch Shootout at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida.
The 24-player PGA Tour sanctioned Shootout that began in 1989 was inspired by the original Shark Shootout that was contested in Grand Cypress in 1986. That single day, 18-hole match benefiting the Arnold Palmer Children's Hospital served as the inspiration for the current event.
The tournament and interview with the First Foursome will be covered by broadcast partners NBC and Golf Channel.
