It's not often that the loss of a public figure brings a tear to my eye. But this loss did. Such great memories. He touched multiple generations, most of all with his humility and kindness.

Mr. Palmer was called"The King" not just because he excelled at golf but because he blended that skill and an appealing go-for-broke style of play that prompted the sport to explode onto the nation's TV screens in the late 1950s.

The closer we get to prime time events the more this will start to settle in that the great one will not be there in the up coming years. Really really sad.
