ORLANDO, Fla. -- Arnold Palmer is 81, but the King's spirit is as young and willing as it ever was.
Case in point:
Saturday, his grandson Sam Saunders was playing the par-5 16th hole at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, paired with veteran Kevin Streelman.
Palmer rolled up in an electric cart ot watch a few holes. Another man in the cart said to Palmer, "This would be a good hole for Sam to pick up a shot."
"A good hole to pick up two shots," Palmer corrected.
Streelman and caddie Mike Christensen loved it.
"Classic Arnold," Christensen said.
Saunders, playing on a sponsor exemption, shot 69.
"First time I have seen him," Christensen said, "but he's good enough to play out here."
