Arnold Palmer’s private funeral was held Thursday in Latrobe, Pa., the town where the seven-time major champion spent most of his life. As an ode to his love of flying, the King’s ashes were taken over the local airport that bears his name, and what happened next felt like it was just meant to be.
After Arnold Palmer's ashes were spread over Latrobe CC today, the sky cleared…and something magical happened.
