Golf Australia Express : GA Express 232
W HEN it comes to honouring sporting heroes, golf is right up there. Few sports provide the kind of eternal adoration and opportunities afforded to its biggest stars. I mean, which other sports provide the winner of their biggest tournament a lifetime entry to compete in it? If form and fortune failed to favour one of tennis’ Grand Slam winners, there’s no guarantee they’d be able to play the next year. But in one of sport’s most unique privileges, Adam Scott and his fellow Masters winners can play golf’s most prestigious event each and every year until they physically can no longer swing a club, or have lost the desire to. Other former champions are honoured with positions as captains of Presidents Cup or Ryder Cup teams, as tournament hosts, or in a more permanent fashion, like Golf Australia’s announcement late last year that five-time British Open champion Peter Thomson would become Australian golf’s first “Immortal”. So it comes as no surprise Bay Hill Club & Lodge will now be home to some fairly significant tributes to the late Arnold Palmer, who passed away in September last year at the age of 87. IT COMES AS NO SURPRISE BAY HILL CLUB & LODGE WILL NOW BE HOME TO SOME FAIRLY SIGNIFICANT TRIBUTES TO THE LATE ARNOLD PALMER, WHO PASSED AWAY IN SEPTEMBER LAST YEAR AT THE AGE OF 87.
