It is Masters week and everyone is making the transition from March Madness to golf. We got treated to an interesting story from Gary Player about legend Arnold Palmer from a Japanese tournament.
Apparently in a green that was surrounded by a crowd, Palmer had “a big poop.” Player laughed at Palmer, who walked away as any of us would had that just happened to us. This is where the story gets interesting.
Player was reportedly confronted by a Japanese official shortly thereafter and was being blamed for the incident. Player tried to explain that it was Palmer but the Japanese official didn’t believe him because Palmer is a legend.
He recounts that part of the story in an interesting Japanese accent. But he says it was televised so there has to be film somewhere right?
