Palmer released from US hospital

Arnold Palmer is out of the hospital and back at work.

A spokesman for the tournament named after the golfing great said Palmer was released yesterday. The 82-year-old Palmer had been hospitalised overnight in Florida as a precaution because of high blood pressure from new medication.

Palmer was absent at the 18th green at Bay Hill on Sunday when Tiger Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
