Palmer honored with statue, highway dedication

The Arnold Palmer Invitational doesn’t officially start until Monday, but the festivities have already begun to honor the legendary host who passed away last September at age 87.

A 14-foot tall, 1,400-pound bronze statue of the King was unveiled Saturday during a ceremony at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge. The statue is located behind the first tee and is similar to the one at Wake Forest, Palmer’s alma mater, in Winston-Salem, N.C.

The Florida Senate also voted unanimously last week to name a section of State Road 408 in Orlando the Arnold Palmer Expressway. And on Wednesday, the public will be able to pay tribute to Palmer during a ceremony at Bay Hill. Palmer’s golf cart is also expected to be placed behind the 16th tee, his favorite spot to watch the tournament.
