124th U.S. Open

Pinehurst No. 2

The Loop

Paying homage to Arnie

September 10, 2009

The players at the BMW Championship on Thursday all wore a small rainbow-colored umbrella pin, Arnold Palmer's logo, in honor of Palmer's 80th birthday.

Here's hoping they go that one better and fill every autograph request they receive, too, in a bow to a man who selflessly gave more of himself to a crowd than any star in the history of the game.
