Working for Arnold Palmer Tournament Services was not only fun but educational as well.

A couple of memories...
One memory I have from the Skins game in Whistler, B.C. was after I had just finished roping off the 14th fairway at the Nicklaus North and I noticed someone approaching the tee box. This caught my attention because the course was closed to the public. So I asked him what he was doing and he told me he was security for Mr. Nicklaus who was playing a practice round in preparation for the Skins game.
Naturally that was my cue to park the Arnold Palmer cart next to the golden bear trees. Within minutes Jack and his son approached the tee followed by at least 10 people. That is when I popped my question, "Excuse me Mr. Nicklaus? Will you please sign my Arnold Palmer tournament services hat?" - sending the entourage into fits of laughter. After the laughter stopped, Jack asked me "What are you guys doing here?" My reply was "Just making sure your course is in tip top shape for the tournament." Jack got a chuckle and signed the hat and proceeded to deliver a crushing drive down the 14th.
