Video: New And Incredible #ArnieWould Ad For The Open

Given that he won here in 1961 and in doing so, re-validated The Open at a time when it was not at peak strength. And still so soon after his passing, this is obviously a sentimental week for Arnold Palmer fans who have two nice tributes to enjoy.

The R&A has a tribute to him at the 18th (and to Roberto de Vicenzo), while the club has commemorated his epic shot at the 16th (then the 15).


And this new Mastercard ad set to run during The Open is especially well done.

Yes, we are sentimental about some of it. We see the rest for what it is; making money off his bones rather than a tribute.

Arnie will ALWAYS be missed -- terribly.

That plaque looks like it is 50 years old. Oh wait, it is.

Loved Arnie. Mastercard pay tribute nicely.

Annie would, no doubt. Mastercard's marketing agency got that right. Every time I hear the tagline I'm also reminded of a legend in another sport -- Eddie Aikau, whose biography is titled, "Eddie Would Go."
