I don't play golf. I've been to the driving range a few times, but that's about it. But I love to watch the major tournaments. They fascinate me. And the Masters is the best.

It always opens with legends Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player taking a ceremonial swing--and until this year the late, great Arnold Palmer.

Gary Player has won nine major championships, including two Masters Championships.

So when Gary Player is impressed enough to send you a shout-out via social media, that is something you won't soon forget.

I'm only GUESSING that's how Owensboro's Matt Atkins felt after getting this:

Congratulations, Matt! That is incredibly cool!
