La Quinta unveils Arnold Palmer statue

La Quinta Golf Club in California unveiled a statue of Arnold Palmer before last week’s CareerBuilder Challenge PGA Tour event.

The King won the event a record six times, and it was also his last PGA Tour victory.

Palmer’s grandson Sam Saunders was present to see the statue unveiled, as was longtime friend and former LPGA Tour commisioner Charlie Meachem.

The CareerBuilder Challenge was won by Jon Rahm who came through a play-off after ending on -22 for the event, while Saunders finished T8 on -18.
