The Golf Channel recently aired a documentary about Mr. Arnold Palmer, one of the greatest golfers of all time. It aired after the 2014 Masters tournament, so I hope that many in the Surge Nation were able to catch it. I shot today's video a few days before, so if you missed out, check your local listings to see when it might get aired again.

It got me thinking about the time I first met Mr. Palmer. He was, and is, such a gentleman and is widely considered as one of the main reasons golf has grown into what it is today. Golf on television became popular because of Hall of Famers like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Gary Player.

Check out today's video as I discuss DJ's first Masters appearance and the mad scramble we had to make for a tee time with Mr. Palmer during the Par 3 contest. It truly was an unforgettable week.

Enjoy,

The Surge
