Now with Rolex […]

GARY PLAYER AND LEE TREVINO TAKE ON KID ROCK AND JACK NICKLAUS IN SKINS GAME

Kid Rock has won a golf event more recently than Tiger Woods (and most other golfers, for that matter). He was teamed with Jack Nicklaus (!) at the skins shootout portion of the Bass Pro Legends of Golf tournament at Big Cedar Lodge over the weekend, and the pair took down Gary Player and Lee Trevino. After playing in a variety of pro-ams over the years, including the famed AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Kid Rock said he got a little nervy when it came time to tee it up with the Golden Bear. Still, he played well. “Yeah, it was nuts man,” Kid Rock told KSDK. “I don’t get nervous much but I was a little bit today and then […]

GOLF TIPS: GARY PLAYER’S OUTSIDE-THE-GYM FITNESS TIPS

How does Gary Player stay so fit? His secrets are simple. Gary Player is legendary for his fitness mania, but the 81-year old Player isn’t a gym rat.

Gary Player sent the perfect tweet about not being invited to #SB2K17 with the rest of the boys

We feel you, Mr. Player. Just like the rest of us, reserved to watching the #SB2K17 crew on social media as the crew tears up Baker’s Bay for a second straight year, it appears Gary Player is joining us in disappointment. The nine-time major champion had made it clear that he wanted in for this year’s post-Masters spring break with Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and Smylie Kaufman. Looks like he didn’t make the cut. Mr. Player had made it pretty clear he wanted to hang with the fellas out at Baker’s Bay, sharing this great tweet last year. There’s no doubt in our mind the 81-year-old could’ve kept up with the boys — no one’s in better shape […]
