Today, Arnold Palmer flew his Citation X from Nashville to Dallas to take part in an HP Byron Nelson Championship luncheon ceremony where he received the Byron Nelson Prize and a $100,000 contribution to a charity of his choice. The Byron Nelson Prize is awarded each year to a person or organization in the golf world who exemplifies the ideals of sportsmanship, integrity and philanthropy that Byron Nelson personified. The T.Boone Pickens Foundation is the presenting sponsor of the Byron Nelson Prize that was created by the Salesmanship Club of Dallas, the tournament organization.
On Monday, Palmer attended The Vinny, an annual pro/celebrity event hosted by music star Vince Gill that benefits youth golf. Palmer spent much of the day posing for pictures, signing autographs and chatting with players at the Golf Club of Tennessee.
When asked for comment on his recent stint philanthropic visits, Palmer simply stated "It was a very heart-warming two-day tour."
