ORLANDO, Fla. — Arnold Palmer is out of the hospital and back at work. A spokesman for the tournament named for the golfing great said Palmer was released Monday morning. The 82-year-old had been hospitalized overnight in Florida as a precaution because of high blood pressure from new medication.

Spokesman Bev Norwood said Palmer returned to his office Monday and planned on having dinner at the golf club.

Palmer was absent at the 18th green at Bay Hill on Sunday when Tiger Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
