On This Day
1994 -- Palmer tells reporters about the last time he heaved a club in anger. “I was 16 playing at a junior tournament near Pittsburgh. I missed an 18-inch putt and threw the putter over a stand of poplar trees. It landed on the next tee. On the next hole, I sank a 10-foot putt to win the match, 1 up. So on the way home, there was dead silence in the car. I asked what’s wrong, and in about five minutes I knew.

What is AP Experience?
The Experience section of ArnoldPalmer.com is more than a website. It's
an interactive museum.
Researchers can read the scores of every round
Palmer's ever shot in competitive play. Fans can study Palmer's contributions to
aviation history -- he set a 1976 speed record by flying around the world in
just 58 hours. They can spend time with the old master in his workshop. They can
get swing tips, advise on how to sink pressure putts, straighten out a slice,
and grill a tasty ribeye on the backyard barbecue. The AP Experience takes a
lifetime of published Palmer stories, photographs and facts and distills them
into a searchable website that will let amateur biographers and fans delve into
the Arnold Palmer that interests them the most.
