Arnold Palmer is such an ambassador for the game of golf and still means so much to this game. It has been such a privilege to have had the opportunity to see him play at the Masters Golf Tournament over the years.
Even though he has made the decision to stop playing in the Masters as a participant, I would hope that he would consider joining Sam Snead as an honorary starter. In this role, he would continue to play an active part in each Masters Golf Tournament. He might consider continuing to participate in the Par 3 Tournament. As a fan, this would be wonderful for the Masters and the game of golf.
A message for Mr. Palmer: Thanks for the memories.
Milledge G. Murray, Augusta
