As the “World’s Most Traveled Athlete,” no one in golf travels more promoting the game than Gary Player. He continues to relentlessly endeavor to grow the game at all levels and in all corners of the globe. From junior golf to professional events, the International Ambassador of Golf is like the Energizer Bunny. The same can be said for the Black Knight in the media. Player continues to be a mainstay in golf and global media.
Throughout the past year, Gary Player has sustained his position as one of golf’s most relevant and leading voices. He has continued his visibility in global media and left a footprint as he discusses hot topics in golf and fitness with various high level, influential media outlets including The New York Times, CNN, Bloomberg, The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, The Daily Mail, ESPN, The Golf Channel, and beyond.
A leading humanitarian and communicator in the game of golf, he touches the lives of millions of people each year through his great passion for life, the game of golf, health and wellness, as well as his genuine love for people. The authenticity and motivational, loving qualities that Player has brought the game for over the past 60 years remains unmatched.
Following Player’s high-profile 2013 where the then 77-year-old posed nude for ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue, Player continued to spread the importance of diet, health, and fitness in golf and life. After pioneering exercise in golf, Player proved his ongoing influence as “Mr. Fitness” took the title of the all-time fittest PGA Tour player by the TOUR.
