The family of Arnold Palmer is waiting until after the Ryder Cup this week for a public farewell.

Alastair Johnston, the chief executive of Arnold Palmer Enterprises, said Monday at a news conference that a public ceremony to commemorate Palmer would be held at 11 a.m. on Oct. 4 at St. Vincent’s College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.

Johnston says the last thing Palmer would want is for a golf schedule to be interrupted.

He says the funeral will be later this week and limited only to family.
