Graeme McDowell wasn’t looking for a gift on Wednesday as he was hitting balls at Bay Hill to prepare for the Arnold Palmer Invitational. So, when Mr. Palmer came over and handed G-Mac an old 1-iron, the Ulsterman hit a few head-high stingers, dispelling the myth that even God can’t hit a 1-iron.
But the story got interesting when G-Mac tried to give the club back. According to the Golf Channel, Mr. Palmer told him, “No, you keep that.”
G-Mac asked if he was serious, and Arnie grinned and reportedly said, “Absolutely.”
Not everyone can use one of the King’s butter-knives. But even fewer can own one.
