OUR LETTER TO THE KING – “DEAR MR. PALMER…”

Dear Mr. Palmer,

Just a short note from us down here to say “Thank you!”

From those of us who were young boys and girls in the 1960s, thank you for bringing the game of golf into our living room (where the only black and white television in the house was at the time) where our families could watch together and cheer for you. For those of us who were born later (with color televisions), thank you for when you kissed us as babies, invited us inside the ropes and charmed us with the caring manner you showed to all.

Thank you from those of us who grew up on municipal courses, with unorthodox swings. You gave us hope that we too could play this game well. “Connected the masses” you did indeed.

Our sincere thanks for being so gracious with everyone you met, sacrificing your private time so that others might have joy in being around you. Somehow, somewhere you developed incredible penmanship, which sculpted a beautiful signature over and over again, an autograph that so many of us treasure and only have because of your kindness and generosity.

Thank you for not stopping with golf, but also becoming successful in business, aeronautics, golf course design and being an incredible philanthropist. Your work has changed and saved so many lives, more than you will ever know.

Thank you for making the Open Championship an important stop in your schedule, for driving the 1st green at Cherry Hills in the 1960 US Open and changing everything, for embracing a group of soldiers from Fort Hood early on at Augusta and for making us all feel like a friend throughout the years.

You said that your mark would be left if the young people you encountered would make an effort to leave the game in better shape than when they found it. That mark has been emblazed for all to see forever.

Half and half lemonade and iced teas for the house.
Godspeed, Mr. Palmer.

Your friends at Roger Dunn Golf Shops.
