VIDEO: Arnold Palmer says the Masters is like Heaven
Arnold Palmer was awesome in his press conference on Tuesday and talked about his first trip to Augusta.
Whatever your beliefs I think you'll understand this metaphor.
When asked about his first Masters experience on Tuesday Arnold Palmer compared it to dying and going to Heaven.
"I came here first in 1955, was my first Masters," said Palmer. "And I parked a trailer with my wife on the other side of Daniel Field just off the railroad tracks...and I drove over to the Club and the feeling was so overwhelming that I felt like I had died and gone to heaven, and I mean that.
It was so wonderful to drive to Augusta and to the Club and the Masters in 1955. And you can't believe it, I played the winter tour for the first time, and the golf courses were, let's say, less than great. But it was my opportunity and when I got here, I felt like I was walking on a cloud. It was so beautiful."
Pretty fond memories for the king.
"It was probably the biggest, exciting thing that had happened to me in my life and in my game of golf. I had won the national amateur. I played a lot of tournaments and I played some good golf, but there was a feeling that is very difficult to tell you what that feeling was like to be here at Augusta and at the Masters. I was just very thankful."
Palmer also mentioned that he would hit the ceremonial first tee shot if he had to crawl to the tee box.
It will be a blast watching him and Jack Nicklaus tee it up with Gary Player again on Thursday morning.
