Golf came out of the long rough into million-dollar pastures, and now attracts so many good athletes that no two men are ever likely to dominate the game the way Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus did at mid-decade. Palmer was the glamour puss, Nicklaus the technician. With his boldness and flair, Palmer brought a new level of golf excitement to the public. But finally his concentration wavered and Arnie's Army rarely ruled. It was left to the young technician to battle the multitudes alone.
Tumult, Poetry, Invincibility A Loss
"This is the legend of Cassius Clay/ The most beautiful fighter in the world today/He talks a great deal and he brags indeedy/Of a muscular punch that's incredibly speedy."
"They all must fall in the round I call."
"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."
"Get up and fight, sucker."
"Call me Muhammad Ali."
"Right after The Bear, we want The Hare."
"The hollering and poetry are over."
"They leadeth me into Toronto, Canada. They maketh me fight out of the country. They leadeth me down the path of bad publicity. I shall be bewailed in the history of sport forever. The sports fan shall follow me all the days of my life."
