Arnold Palmer on Ceremonial Shot: 'Damn Right I'm Gonna Tee It Up'

Tour Confidential: What's the Best Masters in History?
From Byron Nelson in 1942 to Charles Schwartzel in 2011, our panelists debate what their pick is for the best Masters in golf history.

Arnold Palmer is still recovering from a dislocated shoulder injury he suffered back in December.

He was told he shouldn’t practice golf while he rehabs the injury. This week is different, though. This is Masters Week.

So the 85-year-old will hit that opening tee shot alongside fellow greats Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. He’s certainly not letting that bum shoulder hold him back.

Palmer reiterated that sentiment Wednesday morning on set with the Golf Channel, only this time he was rather blunt. “You’re damn right I’m gonna tee it up,” he told Steve Sands.

Let it be known: Arnie will hit that tee shot tomorrow.
