This is a really cool clip of Arnold Palmer talking about Pinehurst and his experience with the course over the years. 

He calls Pinehurst "one of the greatest atmospheres in the world for golf" and says he's excited about the changes made to the course, a throwback to the time he played it.

"This is what it was like in the early days when I first came here," said Palmer. "I liked it much better than I did the revamp."

He also promised he'd get 18 more holes in at this track before his golfing career is over.

"I'm going to come back and play it again before I give up the game totally."

A really cool few minutes with The King.
