Arnold Palmer released from hospital after overnight stay wire reports

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Arnold Palmer is out of the hospital and back at work.

The 82-year-old Palmer had been hospitalized overnight in Florida as a precaution because of high blood pressure from new medication.

Bev Norwood, spokesperson for the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, said Palmer returned to his office on Monday.

Palmer was absent at the 18th green at Bay Hill on Sunday when Tiger Woods won the tournament named for the golfing great. Palmer had been advised to monitor his blood pressure throughout the day. A test about 15 minutes before the tournament ended showed an increase in his blood pressure.
