Arnold Palmer Writes Letter to Peter Malnati After Win

December 7, 2015

Peter Malnati picked up his first career PGA Tour victory when he won the Sanderson Farms Championship with a rain-delayed Monday finish on Nov. 9, and guess who was one of the first to congratulate him?

Arnold Palmer, of course.

Palmer, in a letter dated Nov. 10, 2015 — Arnie wasted no time — patted the 28-year-old on the back with a short and sweet note on on his very own iconic stationary.

Malnati recently tweeted a copy of the letter, and the first line reads: “It took a little longer than at a normal tournament, but you still got the job done despite all the rain.” He clinched the victory during a Monday finish at the Country Club of Jackson in Mississippi.
