He left the following message about the golf legend:

For all who love the game of golf and love to see it played, there has never been a sight quite like Arnold Palmer walking down the fairway toward the 18th green. The great Vin Scully once said, “In a sport that was high society, Arnold Palmer made it ‘High Noon.'” Laura and I are saddened by Arnie’s death and send our sincere condolences to his family, friends, and fellow fans. He was a great American whose friendship – and swing thoughts – will be missed.

Palmer died at the age of 87 Sunday night. The world of golf and the sports world in general is worse off without this legendary player with us anymore.
