His career brought him face to face with many of sports greatest stars -- Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Muhammad Ali, Don Shula, countless Hall of Fame NFL stars, more PGA Tour players than he can count.

        I said “game winner!”
        It’s almost not fair to Thompson to focus on just the one shot considering all the work he did and all the beautiful personal story stuff…but it was that good.
