GARY PLAYER: FAMILY, FRIENDSHIP & FITTNESS

Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Lee Trevino; they have all achieved greatness in the game of golf. But for me, one man stands high on a pedestal above them all. The Black Knight, Gary Player. Maybe it’s our Commonwealth connection, and maybe it’s his larger than life demeanor, maybe it’s his love of life, family and fitness or maybe, it’s because he’s given back more to the game of golf, than golf ever gave to him. Actually, it’s all of it. I was lucky enough to catch up with Gary Player while he was attending the 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale. Leading up to our call, I felt a sense of trepidation along with excitement as Mr. Player is someone who I have always admired.

GARY PLAYER: MENTALITY IS THE DIFFERENCE MAKER

Ian Poulter won in Houston, I was one of the first people to tweet and congratulate him. To birdie the last to force a play-off against Beau Hossler and keep his dream of making The Masters alive was testament to just how strong Ian’s mindset is.

I was fortunate to have been born with that drive and focus to win. Coming from a humble background in South Africa, that fighting spirit gave me the strength of mind to win 18 Majors and 165 tournaments worldwide. It would be great to see Ian keep up his form and play himself into The Ryder Cup later this year, as his passion to win will be contagious […]

COETZEE TARGETS HOME SOIL WIN IN SUN CITY

Home favourite George Coetzee has confirmed his participation in the Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player, the penultimate Rolex Series event on the European Tour’s Race to Dubai, from November 8-11, 2018. As the 2017-18 Sunshine Tour Order of Merit winner, Coetzee qualifies automatically for the event, in a season in which he has already triumphed on South African soil, capturing his second career Tshwane Open title in March. He will now tee it up in an elite field that includes 2017 Masters Champion Sergio Garcia at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City. The 31 year old, who currently sits 41st in the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex, has shown a propensity for winning at home with three of his four European Tour victories coming in South Africa. Coetzee will look to follow in the footsteps of fellow countryman Branden Grace, who prevailed by a […]
