Palmer returns to site of one of greatest triumphs


CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. ' Arnold Palmer issued a challenge to those competing in the Palmer Cup, the college equivalent of the Ryder Cup.
Im looking forward to watching these matches, and guys, he said Tuesday, peeking mischievously at the players from around the podium. Im going to be on the first hole. And the first guy that pulls out a 1-iron or 2-iron or 3-wood, Im going to run out and hand him his driver.
The first hole at Cherry Hills is where Palmer began his famous charge from seven shots back, driving the 346-yard par-4 en route to victory at the 1960 U.S. Open.
It was Palmers only U.S. Open victory and it helped him carve the legacy that he has today as one of the greatest competitors in golf.
Palmer continues to be active even though his playing career is long over. He talked about his goals Tuesday, including growing the game internationally and pushing for equipment changes.
