15 or so years ago I finished reading Arnold's Biography and penned a fan letter to him. I explained that as a native Augustan I had attended many MASTERS practice rounds, a few tournament rounds and since 1979 I had worked at the tournament as a local radio station reporter.  I had always hoped to get his autograph but, not suprisingly , he was always swamped with fabs everytime l encountered him.  l asked if he could send me an autograph...thinking he may never respond or never even get my letter.  What to my wondering eyes should appear a few weeks later than a FedEx box contaning a Framed full color autographed picture of the KING himself signed 'to Keith,  keep enjoying Golf.  thanks, Arnold Palmer'. What a kind act of graciousness!  What a wonderful man!!   Thanks for thwe memories!
