When I was a kid, he was the greatest name in golf. He could turn a round of golf from eye--glazing tedium into genuine drama.

I have heard many who knew him say he would treat famous people, sports reporters, and general fans with the same level of high respect. And that is rare in this day and age, but very revealing of his core character.

My Dad was the same age as Arnie, and he passed away earlier this summer. They were both cut from the same cloth in many ways, i.e. their passion for Golf, midwestern sensibilities, easy-going personalities, and very generous and kind souls. It's tough to see them leave us.

And the popularity of the game of Golf owes a lot to Arnie too!

Condolences. Very sad to lose a father, GearDaddy.

Arnold put it on televsion for anyone to see and witness. He brought "Golf" to the average Joe.
