Arnie and “The Hillary.” You’ll like it.

Recently, America lost a great citizen, Mr. Arnold Palmer. Whether or not you are a golf fan (personally, I am a golf nut) you likely appreciated this blue collar, hard working journeyman who took the world of golf by storm. He helped change the perception of golf as an elite, upper-class pastime to a sport that was accessible to middle and working class Americans. Nicknamed The King, he was one of golf’s most popular stars and its most important trailblazer, the first superstar of the sport’s television age, which began in the 1950s.

(It’s a joke!) As his final request, Arnold Palmer has suggested that the golf term “bad lie” would be more descriptive if called … “A Hillary.” Today, the PGA has honored Arnold’s request and officially approved “A Hillary” in the lexicon of golf terms.


We’ll miss you, Arnie!
