On This Day

1957 -- Arnold and Winnie Palmer begin settling into the pleasant six-room ranch house built on the slopes across the quiet country road from Latrobe Country Club. He pays $600 for the acre, $17,000 cash for the home in which he’ll reside until 2006.
1957 -- Palmer finishes third at the Hesperia Open at the Hesperia G.&C.C.; earns $1,033.
1958 -- A chagrined President Dwight D. Eisenhower writes Palmer a letter apologizing for failing to recognize the Masters champion during a gala event at Laurel Valley Golf Club near Palmer’s Latrobe, Pennsylvania, home. Ike extends belated congratulations and suggests the two play together at Augusta some time, but stipulates “judging from the brand of golf I have recently been displaying, I would be more than embarrassed.” The letter plants the seeds of what will blossom into a special and historic friendship.
