Palmer Will Become Mayo Clinic Patient

By Associated Press

Arnold Palmer piloted his private plane to Minnesota on Sunday and will enter the Mayo Clinic for tests to determine a course of treatment for prostate cancer.

Palmer, 67, found out Friday that a biopsy indicated he had cancer. He left the La Costa Resort and Spa where he was attending the PGA Tour awards dinner at the Mercedes Championship and returned to his Florida home on Saturday.

“His mood is good but he is subdued from his normal demeanor,” Doc Griffin, Palmer’s spokesman and longtime confidante, said Sunday from his home in Latrobe, Pa. “He feels fine. There is nothing bothering him physically.”
