Golf Channel went live through the night on Sunday, remembering Arnold Palmer, who died from heart complications late Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh. As word spread through the golf world, so many of Palmer's contemporaries and proteges and admirers called into the network Palmer co-founded to offer their memories of the 87-year-old.

Fred Couples, the 1992 Masters champion, was one of those people. Couples carries the same cool demeanor Palmer exuded, and his playing style has been a take on Palmer's go-for-broke style.

Couples spoke to Rich Lerner on-air, and he at first struggled to keep his composure, breaking down in tears.

The former world No. 1 had to briefly stop the interview before gathering himself and sharing some potent memories of their times together and a reflection on what Palmer meant to him personally and the sport of golf.
