I marvel at golf. I’ve been immersed in the game now for almost 80 years, yet every day it surprises me or affects me in some new way. Sometimes it’s a swing tip I’ve never heard before. Occasionally it’s a snippet of the game’s rich history that had previously gone unnoticed or maybe it’s that one remaining golf joke I hadn’t yet heard. But the way in which the game most often surprises me – moves me, really – is its endless capacity for good. From the game’s leading professionals to its highest handicappers, from its administrators to its administrated, it is inspiring, even golf-affirming, to know that while ropes may separate the world’s greatest players from their fans, we’re all united in two key ways: charity and the Rules of Golf.

Arnold Palmer is always looking for ways to make the tournament that bears his name a major golfing event
Say this about Arnold Palmer: when it comes to golf, whether he's playing it or contributing to it in some other fashion, he never takes his eye off the ball.
The legendary golfer and seven-time major championship winner doesn't play as much as he used to, but he's still active in the game in many ways, but, of course, no more so than in hosting the PGA TOUR tournament that bears his name. As the 35th edition of the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard approaches, Palmer has a laser focus on making sure that every detail is scrutinized so that when the game's best players arrive, they'll encounter an environment conducive to producing a first-class golf competition at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Florida.

I have been around the game of golf since I first hit a ball when I was 3 years old. That was 80 years ago. I still have interests in golf course design, course ownership and so on, but I haven’t really played competitive golf for quite some time. So as 2012 comes to an end, I’m seeing the game as you do: as a casual player, as a fan and as a businessman. And I like what I see.

“Jim Flick and I became good friends during our college days at Wake Forest. In fact, we were roommates for a short period of time after Bud Worsham died. I followed Jim’s activities and fine career as a golf instructor and we communicated through the years quite a lot. I’m very sorry that this has happened and extend my sincere sympathy to the Flick family.”
