The Masters Are Underway After Ceremonial Tee Shot From Arnold Palmer


Arnold Palmer, as honorary starter for the 2009 Masters, got the greatest weekend in PGA Tour golf off to a fitting beginning by driving the ball down the right side of the fairway. He then went into the clubhouse to enjoy a refreshing beverage that was one-half iced tea and one-half lemonade. You know, someone should come up with a name for that drink. Ah, who has the time in this crazy world anymore?

No word on whether some stupid jackass yelled “GET IN THE HOLE!!!! ARRRGH!!” after The King teed off. If someone did, they should be executed right there on the spot, or at the very least get sodomized with the clubhead of Tiger’s driver by Steve Williams. You just know Steve would relish the experience.
