|JAN ||1968 -- Palmer explains how he deals with disruptive and boisterous
crowds in a game that's best observed in pristine silence: "Sure, it's tough
when the crowd's get going. You can't concentrate. But you get to the
point where you start to expect anything -- noise, shoving, cameras
clicking, people grinding and pulling on your arm wanting something.
But meeting and talking to people is my whole life. I genuinely like
people, so it's not going to bother me." |

Statement from Arnold Palmer
"I was saddened to learn of the passing of Kel Nagle. I always considered Kel a good friend and enjoyed his company on and off the course. We had some exciting times together, especially at my first Open Championship when he won and I finished second at St. Andrews. Kel had an outstanding career and well deserved the admiration he earned from the golfing community and sports world."
The Kingdom Cup 2015
Despite the occasional drop of rain, much merriment occurred over the two days of the VIIth Annual Kingdom Cup golf tournament, presented with Arnold Palmer on January 11th and 12th at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando.
The tournament, presented annually by Kingdom magazine and hosted each year by Arnold Palmer, is a way of Kingdom spending time with, having fun with and saying “thank you” to its loyal clients and supporters. The event is by invitation only, and it helps to raise funds for the Arnold Palmer Medical Center Foundation. To date, Kingdom magazine has raised in excess of $700,000.
