Jim Nantz Sends Arnold Palmer Off With One Final Standing Ovation

Arnold Palmer was eulogized in Latrobe, PA today, with many of Arnie’s friends and family offering heart-felt words. But it was Jim Nantz of CBS Sports who got the attendees on their feet, literally.

Nantz, with his voice cracking, memorialized his “great friend” Palmer in a speech that was wildly lauded as pitch perfect.

At the closing of his speech, Nantz said, “In honor of Arnold, can you give him one more walk, one more standing ovation?”

And with that, Arnold Palmer got his final farewell ovation.

R.I.P. KING. We are going to miss you!
