On This Day
1966 -- Palmer and Jack Nicklaus win the richest prize in professional
golf, the P.G.A. Team Championship at P.G.A. National Golf Club in Palm
Beach Gardens, Florida. The pair justified their status as pre-round
favorites by combining to shoot 63-66-63-64, a score that netted each
$25,000 and sent Palmer’s earnings for the year past $154,000 and
Nicklaus’s to more than $140,000. Golf World magazine writes, “In a
time when many are trying to sound Palmer’s playing death knell, Arnie
can point to four tour triumphs and a grand total of $154,692.24, the
most ever won in a single season.” Read More...
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.
