Few people did more to grow the game of golf than Arnold Palmer. Sneakers NZ For Sale .Fewer did more to provide places to play it.The charismatic champion who died Sunday night of complications from heart problems was every bit as successful at designing courses as he was conquering them. From Palmers first design in 1963, the back nine at his beloved boyhood course in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, to his recently completed project in Brazil, The King was instrumental in shaping the way people around the world enjoy the game.So prolific was Palmer that computer software accompanying a video game that allowed players at home to design their own layouts was called the Arnold Palmer Course Designer. And for his respected design career spanning more than 300 courses, Palmer was giving the Donald Ross Award for lifetime achievement from the American Society of Golf Course Architects.Here are some of his memorable designs, courses that will no doubt carry on his legacy.---KAPALUA RESORT (BAY COURSE) , Lahaina, HawaiiTeaming with Francis Duane, Palmer helped kick off a golf boom on the Hawaiian islands when he opened the first course at Kapalua in 1974. The meandering track with seaside vistas was host to the Kapalua LPGA Classic, and is beloved by amateurs for such holes as the cliff-side par-3 fifth.---BAY HILL CLUB AND LODGE , Orlando, FloridaThe first 18 holes were designed by Dick Wilson in 1961, but the course has been tweaked so much by Palmer over the years that he might as well have laid it out. Palmer bought the course in 1974, and it has been the site of a PGA Tour event since 1979 that has become synonymous with him.---TPC BOSTON , Norton, MassachusettsPalmer built the original course in 2003, and Gil Hanse and Brad Faxon reworked parts of it later, but regardless the layout is considered one of the best on the PGA Tour. It is the host venue for the Deutsche Bank Championship, one of the events in the season-ending FedEx Cup playoffs.---BAY CREEK RESORT (PALMER COURSE) , Cape Charles, VirginiaPalmer and Jack Nicklaus will be forever linked, so perhaps it was inevitable that they would have courses at the same resort. Palmers design came first in 2003, the layout hard along the Chesapeake Bay featuring idyllic views, soaring gulls and pathways made from sea shells.---RUNNING Y RANCH , Klamath Falls, OregonPalmer featured everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer, including meadows and wetlands. But it is the majestic views of the Cascade Mountains that keep people coming back. Palmer said his vision was to leave the land as it lies, and he considered Running Y Ranch to be one of his best designs.---TRALEE GOLF CLUB , County Kerry, IrelandHis first European course, which opened in 1984, Palmer sculpted a layout that teeters on the edge of a windy point high over the sea. The Academy Award-winning film Ryans Daughter, starring Robert Mitchum and Sarah Miles, even used the striking backdrop of the golf course for some of its filming.---TURTLE BAY RESORT (PALMER COURSE) , Oahu, HawaiiThe resort itself is a popular filming location or movies and TV shows, but its the golf courses -- one designed by Palmer, the other by George Fazio -- that draw players from around the world. The course is set along the famed North Shore, home to Pipeline, Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay.---CHUNG SHAN HOT SPRING GOLF CLUB , Zhongshan, ChinaOther designs may be more memorable, and certainly more striking, but few have been more important to growing the game. Chung Shan Hot Spring was the first course in China when it opened in 1984, and to this day it remains a popular track in the city of 3 million.---HALF MOON BAY (OLD COURSE) , Half Moon Bay, CaliforniaPebble Beach and Cypress Point may be more revered, but the views from the 405-yard par-4 finishing hole at Half Moon Bay are every bit as striking. The rest of the course, built in 1973, has a parkland feel, but the 18th towers on a bluff high above the Pacific Ocean.---BREEZY POINT RESORT (DEACONS LODGE) , Breezy Point, MinnesotaThere are other courses that deserve to be on a list of Palmers best, from his courses at PGA West and Oasis Golf Club, to his layout at Kildare Hotel and Country Club in Ireland. But there is only one that is name for his father, Deacon, a tranquil layout that he always considered among his favorites.---REUNION RESORT AND CLUB (PALMER COURSE) , Kissimmee, FloridaThe only resort with courses by Palmer, Nicklaus and Tom Watson, it is the rolling layout that opened in 2004 that stands out. Palmers course is carved of a former citrus grove and is home to heron, coyotes, wild turkey, red tail hawks, tortoises and armadillos, among other species of wildlife. Cheap Sneakers NZ Free Shipping . The return match will take place next Wednesday. Udinese leads Fiorentina 2-1 in the other semifinal. Napoli staged a second-half comeback from two goals down after Gervinhos opener and a stunning strike from Kevin Strootman. Wholesale Shoes NZ . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. http://www.discountsneakersnz.com/ . Parker had 26 points and eight assists and San Antonio beat Toronto 112-99 Monday night. "We won that game because of Tony Parkers aggressiveness," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "His juice; his aggression all night long.As a start to a new career goes it is difficult to imagine anyone matching former champion Flat jockey Joseph OBriens four-timer from seven runners on his first day as a fully-fledged trainer. Justice Frederick got the ball rolling by winning the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden at Gowran Park, which was swiftly followed up when Mai Fitzs Jack strolled home in the John B. Keane (C & G) Maiden Hurdle at Listowel.The third success came back on the level with OBriens brother, Donnacha, who also rode Justice Frederick, coming from nearly last on Zig Zag in the Gowran Park Golf Club Handicap. OBriens sister, Sarah, meanwhile, merely had to point Oathkeeper in the right direction to take the concluding bumper at Listowel, the pair bolting up in the colours of JP McManus.Multiple Classic winner OBrien has been overseeing a team of horses at his familys Piltown yard, but until he completed all his training modules they were competing under the name of his father, Aidan.To prove how seriously he is taking his new venture the fledgling trainer was sourcing new horses at the sales rather than watching any of his current ones run in person.Justice Frederick had been an odds-on favourite in the morning with a newcomer from OBrien seniors Ballydoyle base, Leo Minor, easily backable.However, right on the off there was a huge shift in momentum which saw Leo Minor go off favourite at 6/5 and Justice Frederick sent off at 6/4.Leo Minor came with a challenge but looked green on his debut and was beaten a length and a half, with the success coming 23 years after Aidan OBrien saddled his first winner, Wandering Thoughts, at Tralee.Donnacha OBrien said: He learned from the first day, and the step up to seven furlongs suited him.Annemarie OBrien, Josephs mother, added: The plan is to go for the Chesham at Royal Ascot.Mai Fitzs Jack won as an odds-on shot should. Made the 4/9 favourite on the strength of a second-place finish last time out, the result hardly looked in any doubt.Brian OConnell never had to exert himself and just had to keep his wits about him as his mount got in slightly too close to the final flight.Aidan OBrien was at Listowel, where he said: Straight away I got put in my place!It was great in Gowran and our own horse (runner-up Leo Minor) maybe got a little tired. I underestimated the strength of Josephs horse, obviously.His (Josephs winner Justice Frederick) first run was over five (furlongs) and is a horse that will get seven and further.This horse (Mai Fitzs Jack) was unlucky the last day when he made a mistake at the last two and I think the winner was a decent horse. Wholesale Sneakers NZ From China. .Im not sure, but Id imagine hell (Joseph) keep him busy over the summer.He went on: Its a massive day for us and its great to get a win both over jumps and on the Flat.I couldnt believe when someone said to me that it was 23 years ago to the meeting (then at Tralee) that I had my first winner with Wandering Thoughts - I couldnt believe that, it is some coincidence.Joseph loves it (training) - he loved riding but it was tough for him for a long time (with weight); doing 9st every morning was very hard.Hes a big man now, hes well over 11st and he doesnt look heavy.No one will get more pleasure than me, but Ill have to keep my eye on the ball now!Zig Zag (7/1) weaved through nearly the whole field for his success, with Annemarie OBrien saying: Its been a great day for Joseph, and its nice to get a bracket for this horse. Hell go for something similar again.Oathkeeper could not have done it any easier as the 11/8 favourite, coming home with nine lengths in hand of Bel Sas.Aidan OBrien said: Its very exciting and great also for JP. It (Josephs career) is something to look forward to and he looks a fair horse.I think he might be going jumping now, but Joseph will discuss that with Frank (Berry, McManus racing manager).It has been an incredible day - how can you improve on that?OBrien swiftly registered his first double when Mai Fitzs Jack strolled home in the John B. Keane (C & G) Maiden Hurdle at Listowel.Sent off the 4/9 favourite on the strength of a second-place finish last time out, the result hardly looked in any doubt.Brian OConnell never had to exert himself and just had to keep his wits about him as his mount got in slightly too close to the final flight.OBrien says his team will be split roughly 50/50 between Flat horses and jumpers.  OBriens day got even better later on when Donnacha OBrien gave 7/1 chance Zig Zag a tremendous ride as they got up to take the Gowran Park Golf Club Handicap, beating Phebes Dream by a neck.And it was four when OBriens sister Sarah merely had to point 11/8 favourite Oathkeeper in the right direction for a most impressive victory in the bumper back at Listowel, absolutely bolting up in the JP McManus colours.
