    was in California a few years back and visited Pebble Beach. While there someone in pro shop said that we could go to driving range and hit some balls with their clubs. We loaded into a van and made the short trip to the driving range and hit some balls. The guy that was there at range asked us if we saw Arnold Palmer at clubhouse and we said no. He said that he teed off around 11am and that we may catch him before he was through. We went back to the course and started walking from #18. We got to the 17th tee box and saw he and a friend coming down 16th fairway. each of them had a caddy and a cart. When they got to 17 i introduced myself and asked Mr. Palmer if i could get a picture with him. He was very nice and said sure you can. I introduced my wife and 4 others that were with me and then took the picture. I went to Augusta the next year hoping to get him to autograph it but didn't get to do that and the next year he passed away. What a great person he was and am sure he is missed by everyone who ever came into contact with him.

    Thank you
