Golfing-in-Exile (7): The Once and Future Kings Herald the 2010 Masters

This is part of my Series on Golfing-in-Exile.

The Honorary Starters Ceremony has been held at the Masters since 1963. In this ceremony, past champions of an earlier age have the distinct honor of leading off the tournament with ceremonial tee shots.  It is just one of many traditions that separates and distinguishes the Masters from any other golf tournament in the world.

See the footage below of two living legends of the game, Arnold Palmer (at age 80) and Jack Nicklaus (70) kicking off the 2010 Masters in grand style. Incredible champions, true gentlemen and worldwide ambassadors of the game. This ceremony never ceases to give me the chills.
