PGA golfer Jordan Spieth is in contention (tied for fourth) to win the 2017 Masters tournament in Augusta, Georgia on Sunday, April 9. It is the first tournament in 62 years without the presence of legendary player/mentor Arnold Palmer who died last year. During the third round of the tournament on Saturday Spieth was on the 13th hole and asked aloud, ‘What would Arnie do?” Spieth was in the woods, 228 yards from the green. Spieth told The New York Times: “I’ve been thinking of Arnie all week. And thinking that you’ve got to play this golf course as he did — without fear.” Palmer won the Masters four times — in 1958, 1960, 1962, and 1964.

P.S. Spieth, using a 4-iron, got his ball to within 30 feet — on the right side of the hole. He birdied it. The Masters is broadcast live on CBS.
