Palmer, Coles in crowd

The crowds at The Greenbrier have been good all week, and Thursday is no exception. Among the fans watching are the legendary Arnold Palmer and former NBA guard Bimbo Coles.

Palmer is in the gallery of his grandson, Sam Saunders, who is 3 over and playing the 18th hole.

Coles grew up in nearby Covington, Va., and played his high school ball at Greenbrier East in Lewisburg, W. Va. -- where Jim Justice, who owns the Greenbrier, coaches the girls team. He went on to play for Virginia Tech and was a member of the 1988 U.S. Olympic team.

Coles played for the Miami Heat, Golden State Warriors, Atlanta Hawks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics. – Helen Ross
