#PLANK4PLAYER: CELEBRATE GARY PLAYER’S 82ND BIRTHDAY

Today is Gary Player’s 82nd birthday! We would like to honor “Mr. Fitness” in the most appropriate way possible. Last year we asked everyone to do 81 sit-ups (or as many as possible) to honor his life-long commitment to diet, health and fitness. This year we kindly ask you to participate in our social media campaign, #PLANK4PLAYER. From his family and friends, to other professional athletes, to his favorite media outlets, we hope you will consider taking a few minutes out of your day to plank for 82 seconds or as many as you can do at one time. Once you finish, please post a picture of yourself in the plank position using the hashtag #PLANK4PLAYER and mention @garyplayer (or @gary.player on Instagram) in your post. This can be of yourself as an individual, or perhaps your entire family, office or team. He enjoyed seeing everyone exercise on his birthday […]

GARY PLAYER CC COURSE NEARING PEAK CONDITION FOR NEDBANK GOLF CHALLENGE

With just over one week to go until the start of the Nedbank Golf Challenge, hosted by Gary Player, the Gary Player Country Club golf course is on track to reach its peak condition for “Africa’s Major.” “I’m very happy with where the course is at the moment,” said Sun City Golf Director, Ken Payet, as his team prepares to host the $7.5 million tournament on the European Tour’s elite Rolex Series from 9-12 November. “We had a visit from the European Tour agronomist who met with our head course superintendent and they are very happy. We’ve had some early rains which has helped the rough. We don’t want the course too tough but it must be challenging for the players.” According to Payet, the process for the green keeping staff from now until tournament week is simply to pay attention to the detail that makes this one of the […]
