Arnold Palmer was truly amazing — even inspirational — but perhaps they compromised him, like they did Billy Graham.
“How did you first come to know Arnold?” – Rich Lerner, host
“Oh gosh, that goes back some 45 years ago. We were both guests of a gentleman at the Bohemian Grove. And I went down and picked him up. He’d flown in on John Denver’s Lear. … He was flying this Lear, and I picked him up and took him up to the Grove. We just had a great time. And we hit it off, and we became pretty good friends.”
– Dick Ferris ‘longtime friend,’ calling in by phone
