     That is a fine clip Kat...I've heard that Arnold was/is the unofficial PGA "Gentle Enforcer"; that is to say that if any fresh, young, newer, Tour Pro stepped out of line with behavior or dress, you could expect a personal phone call from Mr Palmer for correction. Gary McCord got one for showing up in Levis...never again...
