Michigan golfer Nick Carlson was the delayed recipient of a special memento last week -- a letter from legendary golfer Arnold Palmer.Carlson said he was amazed to receive the three-paragraph note congratulating him for being a semifinalist in the U.S. Amateur in August at Oakland Hills Country Club.Utter shock, really, Carlson told The Detroit News on Thursday. Like, I never expected it. Its just something really cool and almost a priceless moment, in my opinion.Palmer sent the letter Sept. 8, a few weeks before he died Sept. 25 at the age of 87. Carlson finally received it Oct. 7 and posted a photo of it on Twitter.Keep up the good playing, Palmer wrote. I wish you the very best in whatever pursuit you choose to follow in the future.The sophomore said he hadnt been back to the golf course where he works to get the note from the seven-time major champion. He told the newspaper that he has since framed the letter.Ive never been able to say that I knew Mr. Palmer or met him in any fashion, and to get that 10 days [after his death] was pretty special, Carlson said.?Its framed and above my desk in my room. I get to look at it every day.Carlson, 20, made an unlikely run to reach the U.S. Amateur semifinals in his home state, entering the event ranked No. 1,981 in the world amateur rankings.Information from The Associated Press contributed to this report.

According to a report from the Winnipeg Free Press, the Bombers will name Acting GM Kyle Walters to the post full time. The spat between Australian basketballers Liz Cambage and Andrew Bogut has escalated with the Opals star looking for an explanation about her Boomers counterparts attitude towards her.Cambage and Bogut, the two highest profile players in their respective teams, have been at loggerheads on Twitter, Cambage incensed by a recent comment from the NBA winner where he sarcastically questioned her commitment to the national team.It followed days of exchanges between the two, related in part to Cambages support of a racial equality rally staged in Melbourne earlier this month.Bogut had initially described the issue, which had American roots, as irrelevant before Cambage pointed out that Australia had significant racial problems of its own.The matter appeared to come to a head with Bogut apologising but quickly became rancorous again.When Cambage responded that Boguts retraction was better late than neverBogut replied: would not have guessed better late than never is your mantra! Know of any music festivals I can skip training for in Rio?His retort was in reference to an incident in which Cambage was dumped form the Olympic qualifiers in 2015 after attending a music festival instead of the first day of an Opals training camp.The mattter has left Cambage angry.ddddddddddddIve been trying not to bring any of this up publicly, but if Andrew Bogut is going to speak like that to me publicly Im going to talk about this publicly now, Cambage told Fairfax from the United States, where the Opals are playing a number of Olympic warm-up matches.Its frustrating because Ive just focused on the Olympics all year and then this happens when all Im trying to do is educate someone for their ignorant comments.But its weird because hes done stuff about me before. Hes retweeted things about me and commented on things about me before. Its just strange. I dont really understand what I did to him, if Ive done anything to him, but its bizarre.Cambage said she would not expressly seek Bogut out in Rio but that an encounter was inevitable:Im sure well bump into each other, well be living in the same building.Asked if that would be tense, she said:No, if I see him Ill ask him what his problem is. I dont want to start anything but it will be like what is your issue with me?Im not scared, Im not trying to start a fight either. I would just ask whats up? ' ' '
