Arnold Palmer (& his son? as caddie) in 1977
Perhaps there are some Collinsville folks attending the much hyped 2007 PGA Golf event in Tulsa this week that would send me a few up-to-date photos? The 1977 event in Tulsa is the only professional golf event I have ever attended. I don't recall the 1977 price but know it was much less than the $95 - $110 ticket prices I've heard for the 2007 event (which Tiger Woods was leading after 2 days). -- Ted Wright

Collinsville even had it's own golf tournaments in the 1930's when it had a local par three course.
