(Radio.com) Pop star and actor Justin Timberlake paid tribute to the late golfing legend Arnold Palmer via social media. Timberlake shared a photo of himself with Palmer on Instagram, together with the statement below.

"First tournament I ever played in… He looked this young man in the eye and introduced himself. You could feel the GREATNESS surrounding him. I was in awe.

"A few months later, I ran into him on the driving range at Bay Hill with a pitching wedge in my hand and he sat and helped me with my swing(despite his best efforts, I still need all the help I can get…).

"He changed the game forever. He defined what the modern athlete is. He flew his own plane to his tournaments. He STARTED a network JUST for the sport. He won spectacularly. He lost graciously. He was bigger than the game. And, he was one of the nicest men I have ever met." Read more and see the photo here.
