U.S. Postal Service to honor Arnold Palmer with a stamp



The United States Postal Service will honor Arnold Palmer by issuing a commemorative stamp of the seven-time major champion in 2020.

The USPS announced the reason behind the decision being due to Palmer’s “positive impact and compelling story, rising from humble beginnings to become a globally revered champion”.

The agency also noted regarding the upcoming stamp that “with drive and charisma, he helped transform a game once seen as a pastime for the elite into a sport enjoyed by the masses.”

The stamp will be a “forever” stamp, meaning that its value will always equal the cost of a first-class mail stamp. The image featured will be of Palmer at the 1964 U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club in a pose captured by photographer James Drake.

Speaking on the news, Palmer’s daughter, Amy Saunders stated

“To have my father celebrated in this way is a true honor. It’s something I think he would be proud of as both an individual and an American, and it’s a wonderful way to preserve his legacy.”

The exact date in which the stamp will be available has yet to be revealed.

    Mr. Palmer is a great AMERICAN “ROLE MODEL” for all to learn from. He was always so grounded and humble in victory or defeat. Kudos to the USPS for bringing honor to a true AMERICAN HERO! Proud member of Arnies Army!

Phil Mickelson explains why he wears sunglasses on the course



Phil Mickelson’s guest appearance in the CBS studio over the weekend earned plenty of plaudits from golf fans, who in return were treated to the reason why Lefty is now wearing sunglasses while he plays.

Prompted by Jim Nantz to discuss his new look, Mickelson explained

“There’s actually a story to that. Back during Covid break, I did this Carac cream, which is like a skin cancer chemotherapy treatment on your face for like two weeks. Your skin blotches up, and you kill these cancer cells that you can’t see, and when I went outside, I had to wear some protection, so I wore these glasses to kind of protect the area around my eyes.

I liked it. They didn’t move around on my face when I was swinging, I went out and played with them, and I thought, ‘Oh, I’ll give it a try.’ So that’s kind of where it started. And then my eyes were much more relaxed at the end of the day; they weren’t squinting the whole time.”

As for the brand of sunglasses, that’s still an unknown. In our forums, however, our members have been discussing who they think the glasses are manufactured by. Have your say here.
