Arnold Palmer’s grandson, Sam Saunders, spoke to media members at the Web.com Tour Championship, prior to the event’s cancellation due to Hurricane Matthew:
Q: A lot of people are saying great things about your speech (at your grandpa’s memorial service). Were you nervous about that?
SAUNDERS: Incredibly. More nervous than I’ve ever been in my life. More than anything, the company that I was speaking with. I’m a professional golfer, not a professional speaker. So my mindset was I’ll let them do the professional speaking and I’ll just try to do my best. I was very fortunate to somehow find the composure up there to say what I wanted to say.

ATLANTIC BEACH, Florida — PGA TOUR officials announced that the Web.com Tour Championship, scheduled for October 6-9, has been cancelled due to the pending threat of Hurricane Matthew. An evacuation of Atlantic Beach was issued late Wednesday morning by the city of Jacksonville.
“It is unfortunate that we’ve had to cancel our season-ending event; however, our first priority is the safety of our players, fans, volunteers and staff,” said Web.com Tour President Bill Calfee. “With Hurricane Matthew on the horizon, it is critical that we make sure everyone involved with the Web.com Tour Championship has ample time to evacuate the Northeast Florida area and return home.”
