    THE FINAL LESSON An excerpt from “A Life Well Played” by Arnold Palmer Reprinted with permission I want to leave you with this thought, a confession, if you will: I never cared for the nickname “the King.” At times, it has made me uncomfortable and even a bit irritated to be referred to that way. I know it was meant to be flattering, but there is no king of golf. There never has been, and there never will be. Golf is the most democratic game on earth, a pastime of the people that grants no special privileges and pays no mind to whether a man is a hotel doorman or a corporate CEO. It punishes and exults us all with splendid but uncompromising equal opportunity. I’m the son of a hard-nosed golf course caretaker who had large hands and an even larger heart. He was intelligent, and he was thoughtful, but most of all, he was a man who knew the importance of priorities and respect for people and the game. He drilled into me the importance of always leaving the golf course better than I found it. I feel we have to be more vigilant than ever to make certain the things that make golf such a great game remain the same and are protected and nurtured and preserved for the next folks coming along. I do like being called an ambassador of the game. It is a role I take very seriously, whether in my work with the USGA or with my own tournament or building a golf course or supporting the game in whatever capacity I choose to take on whenever I am in the public eye. And I hope I have set an example for everyone who loves the game to be an ambassador of sorts, too. Because we all have a responsibility to make sure this great game remains great. Furthermore, I’ve always tried to be a role model, to set a good example, and sometimes I’ve wondered if I did a good enough job in that regard. Mostly, however, I’ve simply wanted to be a golfer. And an incident that happened to me in 1991 at my own tournament at Bay Hill, then called the Nestle Invitational, reaffirmed that I was still thought of as a golfer by I suppose, in the final accounting of it all, what I really am is a caretaker of the game, just the way my father was before me. my fellow PGA Tour competitors. I had made the cut that year at the age of sixty-one, and unbeknownst to me, Peter Jacobsen, a good friend, decided that he was going to buy me a cake to commemorate the feat, though making the cut wasn’t something I considered a feat. Peter went to a local Winn-Dixie and asked for a sheet cake for about 200 people, he told the manager, and he convinced the fellow to bake the cake that night so they could present it to me sometime that weekend. I can’t tell you how thrilled I was when the guys put that cake in front of me. As luck would have it – if you can call it that – we had a rain delay on Saturday of the tournament and just about every player who made the cut was in the locker room. Ray Floyd, Greg Norman, Jeff Sluman, Paul Azinger, Rocco Mediate, and Tom Kite were among the players who gathered around. It was a wonderful surprise. And not a bad cake, I might add. I cut a piece for every player who was there. It was a fun afternoon, to say the least, and quite meaningful to me not just because Peter and the others went to the trouble to do that, but because I thought it said something. In my mind, it said that the guys still thought of me as one of them, that I still had a place in their world, and that they cared about what I thought and what I said. I never wanted to be on any kind of pedestal; I never thought of myself that way, and this was an occasion when I was just one of the guys. I have been asked about what my legacy might be, and, honestly, I’ve never really given it much thought. I can’t put into words what the game has meant to me. And I can’t tell you how great people have been to me over the years. So, if I enhanced the game and people’s enjoyment of the game, I would feel like I have accomplished something. I suppose, in the final accounting of it all, what I really am, inescapably – and how I prefer to be thought of in terms of my legacy – is a caretaker of the game, just the way my father was before me. Someone who tried to preserve it, nurture it, and improve it if he could, and who tried, also, to be a caretaker of the dignity of the game. I hope you think I did a good job. I hope Pap thinks so, too. www.arnoldpalmerbook.com 136 | A LIFE WELL PLAYED
