Welcome to Backspin, a video series where GOLF.com’s equipment editors Jonathan Wall and myself, Andrew Tursky, take a look back at nostalgic golf videos.
In this week’s episode of Backspin, we watch an old 1974 Cadillac commercial starring the late great Arnold Palmer. The seven-time major champion was a legend both on the course and off. He won golf tournaments, he won the hearts of fans with his winning smile, he was a savvy businessman, and he wasn’t too shabby of a commercial actor, either.
As we learned from the Cadillac commercial, however, Palmer does have a weakness: tennis.
Despite his tendency to miss a bit low on his tennis shots, he does have quite the on-camera presence. Watch the video for yourself at the top of the story!
