|AUG ||1969 -- The Philadelphia Inquirer publishes a feature about the
anguish in Palmer's hometown as the native son battles back from hip pain that
caused him to withdraw from the PGA after shooting an opening round 82.
Latrobe bartender Jim Jones says, "We all felt badly for him. He's a fine boy,
we love him and he's ours, but we're sure of one thing. You can't keep
ol' Arnie down." Deke Palmer says Arnie's problem is too much practice.
"I asked him what he was trying to do, develop more muscles. I told him
he had enough muscles and he was too old for that stuff." |
