In the photo at left, Frank Hoover, 16, of Lakemont, served as the caddy for Arnold Palmer when he visited Park Hills Golf Club in July 1958. Hoover, who submitted these photos, said he was selected for the honor because he was the “senior caddy” at the club. The photos below were taken at the practice area and the first tee. The foursome included golf professionals from area clubs. Shown are (from left): Jim Mullen of Park Hills, Palmer, Jim Davis of Bedford Elks and Chad Garlina of Cresson Summit. Palmer, “a golfing legend and American icon,” died in September 2016 at the age of 87.
