Neither rain, nor sleet, nor surgery will keep the King from his appointed rounds.

On the mend after undergoing successful pacemaker implant surgery earlier this month, Arnold Palmer, who turns 85 on Sept. 10, is up and about and itching to start playing golf again.

“I’m back and feeling fine,” Palmer told ESPN this week from his office near Latrobe, Pa.

Still an avid golfer after all these years, Palmer is also counting down the time until he can tee it up again.

“Twelve days,” he said. “My back has been bothering me some, but this has more to do with the swing and the fact that the pacemaker is in my shoulder. They don’t want me to disrupt the wiring that is in there. So I’ll wait for the doctors to say it’s OK.”

Go Arnie.  We need him to be ready to stripe one down the middle to start the Masters next April.

The most charismatic golfer ever.  And the guy responsible for the explosion of the game.  Every pro should kick 20% of his winnings to Arnie.
