Golf legend Arnold Palmer hospitalized

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Arnold Palmer was hospitalized overnight as a precaution after doctors noticed a rise in his blood pressure.

Palmer's longtime business manager says the 82-year-old legend is on new medication and was checking his blood pressure throughout the final round of his namesake tournament in Orlando. About 15 minutes before the tournament ended, doctors noticed enough of an increase to take him to the hospital for closer evaluation.
