Arnold Palmer, beloved golf legend and international icon, dead at 87

The USGA is honoring Palmer's legacy Sunday in the final round of the U.S. Open in a unique way. They've added a silhouette of Palmer on the flag at the 18th hole. The silhouette comes from Arnie's historic 1960 U.S. Open victory at Cherry Hills, when he tossed his visor into the crowd after sinking the winning putt.

Here's a photograph of the moment that inspired the silhouette.
